UPDATE: Holy Cup of Doubleness

Now in mid-production! So be sure to Pre-order the Holey Jolly on CKIE, the offer is open for a very limited time.

Holy cheese anyone? This is a cup with holes in it. What’s the use? Well it keeps your hands cool when you pour in a hot drink, for one. But wait! Won’t the hot drink sploosh out the sides when poured in the top? No way! Know why? Because there’s two layers. The outer layer has holes, the inner layer contains the liquid. Sound good? Sounds super fancy! Sounds great!

Oh Makiko Nakamura, you are a designer of some excellent intent. Not only does one pay more attention to the container one is drinking out of when they’re drinking out of this, they’ve got a completely functional hand protector on their hands. If your drink is super hot or if your drink is super cool, doesn’t matter! Your hands will be safe. Rockin!

    has no one questioned how putting ventilating holes in a cup where ur hand actually goes keeps your hands cooled? the heat would seap through the holes to ur hand now ur hand is not only hot but wet from condensation also escaping the glass

    • Thor says:

      Condensation would only form in the holes if the drink was colder than the air in the room. If the drink is hot, the air in the holes would heat up and therefore become able to hold more moisture, causing the relative humidity would go down. Your hands would actually become more dry from contact with the air in the holes. And because air is not a good conductor of heat, you wouldn't get burned, that is the main idea.

    I feel like those cups would be impossible to clean. And a clear inner layer would make the cups much cooler.

    LAZY PEOPLE THESE DAYS. Our sad little habits are keeping people starving, dying, and suffering. We are animals, do you forget? When is the last time that you have been in a natural sorrounding? When is the last time that you've done anything real? Think about this- you don't need it and maybe help save somebodies life. "God gave us a body that can withstand almost anything. It's our minds that we have to convince." Come on people.

    How would it be a better insulator? There is no air / vaccum gap – it is simply a solid mug with 'dents' made to look like holes.
    Also impractical from cleanliness / hygene point EVEN if you use a dishwasher.
