With the advent of Kickstarter, inventors have been able to see their ideas through from concept to reality. From the Coolest Cooler, a cooler with all the accessories you can imagine, to the GripSnap, a magnetic phone mount that helps you take perfect pictures, there are tons of new inventions for every aspect of your life.
We’d have a hard time showcasing all of the fun and innovative ideas that are popping up, but there’s one that caught our eye. It’s not necessarily the flashiest invention, but it may be one of the more useful designs. The Mighty Mug, an untippable coffee mug, may be the perfect beverage holder for the accident-prone coffee enthusiast.
If you’ve spilled coffee on your desk (keyboard and/or computer), you know the feeling of sheer terror that immediately envelops you. Wondering whether you’ve just destroyed all of your electronic data as you scramble for paper towels is an awful feeling. Good news! The Mighty Mug can apparently prevent you from feeling that way ever again.
The Mug works with a suction cup-like technology. If you hit the container from the side – simulating an accidental tip-over – the bottom grips the surface of the desk, table, etc. to avoid tipping over. However, if you life it up vertically, as if to take a sip, you’re good to go; the cup will move with you.
There are two models currently available, the Mighty Mug Go and the Mighty Mug, both retailing for $19.99. If you want to buy a water bottle dipped in gold, you can also do that for an affordable $5,000. It’s not just a gimmick; the $5K goes to charity if you decide to purchase the one-of-a-kind unspillable bottle.
