Beer me an invention

So I had a job interview today in addition to about 987562 other things, which is why I SPY was sidelined. My apologies. Blogging just doesn’t pay the bills. Anyways,  I had to talk about my passion for innovation and technology or some other stupid interview topic, which got me thinking of inventions, which led me to THIS:

It’s your invention of the day: a beer cup that fills from the bottom up! So cool! How doesn’t it leak???? It debuted at a Flyers game last week and is supposed to save time at concession stands. I mean, intuitively it doesn’t seem like it would save THAT much time, especially since the quickest way would be to hand someone a can, but Bottom’s Up claims a cup a second. I am mesmerized. You can find actual information about the invention here. This video shows the process:

Sweet, right? I guess the upside to having to repeatedly justify why EVOLUTION exists is that scientists are inventing ways to get drunk as quickly as possible. Cheers for science!

  1. Great idea – slight problem – its been done previously -e.g. see American Patent Application US2010/0043911 A1
    On the other hand the present inventors seem to have commercialized the invention – very important – so congratulations.
