FINALLY, a Powered Cup That Automates Your Drinking

It's 2014 and we're still here manually sipping our favorite bevarines like a planet full of absolute savages. There's GOT to be a better way!

It’s 2014 and we’re still here manually sipping our favorite bevarines like a planet full of absolute savages. There’s GOT to be a better way!

An Indiegogo project called Drink E-Z is looking to raise $65,000 to build “an automated power assisted drinking cup.” The cup runs off of three AAA batteries that power a tiny pump, which shoots whatever’s in the cup up through the straw whenever you press the button on the side of the cup.

The cup is loosely positioned as a medical aid for people who have just had their wisdom teeth pulled or who have just had surgery. It even goes a step further, claiming that manually sucking your drinks up through a savage-straw can lead to wrinkles – ergo, the cup prevents wrinkles, right?

But let’s get down to business: This is a cup for ‘Mericans. Did we lose a war? Why, oh why, are we still burning precious calories with old-timey straws? The cup’s designer lives in Canada, but still… USA! USA! USA!

A $35 pledge will get you early access to one of the cups, which are slated to start shipping in June. That’s assuming this project hits its funding goal – but, come on. How could it not?

Seriously.  You need something to squirt your sugar water crap into your mouth?  Next you will be wanting the suction toilet.  The suction toilet will help you....  never mind....

I have two issues with this article.

Do you need to be so lazy you can't pull fluid through a straw? And

What the heck is a bevarines ??  I looked it up and there are at least a dozen other web pubs with the same misspelling. So not only is the author in need of a proof reader, but all the other pubs just copied/pasted and added no value (Time Inc included).

I guess they are the intended consumers for this power straw/cup!
