To help her grandfather who suffers with Parkinson’s Disease, 11 year old Lily has designed a fantastic new kind of drinking vessel called the Kangaroo cup which has been designed to be unbreakable and also provide a range of features.
The new Kangaroo cup has been designed to be tip-resistant using a three-legged form, making it perfect for picnics or younger children as well. To learn more about the new Kangaroo cup check out the Kickstarter promo video after the jump.
The Kangaroo cup project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production, and is already over half way to securing its $25,000 pledge goal with still 32 days left to run on the project. Lily’s Dad explains a little mores bout the inspiration behind the project.
“A few years ago, my daughter Lily decided to make a better cup for her grandfather. She noticed that his Parkinson’s Disease was causing him to spill his cup, and she started dreaming of ways to fix this. She had an idea to put legs on his cup to prevent it from spilling. Using moldable prototyping plastic, she attached legs to her grandpa’s tumbler, and the Kangaroo Cup was born.”
