Spill-Proof Drinking Cup with Integrated Light-Sensing LED

1 w2erfghj

That's some serious technology in the drinking space.

TechnoDolts™ will please move along, nothing to see here.

Everyone else may proceed.

From the website:


Lite Cup

Special 360-degree silicone seal ensures that liquid is released only when you actively sip around the top of the closed cup, so when you remove your lips it's sealed instantly — you can even drink from this cup while laying down without making a mess.

Light-sensitive base with on/off switch emits a soft glow only in low light to preserve battery (included).

Dishwasher safe.
