For all the hygienic bros out there.

U know when ur tryna pong but the ball gets grody and goes in ur brewski? Not anymore, brah! Five brothers from Connecticut have invented a new device that prevents dirty ping pong balls from getting in your beer. It's called the Slip Cup. Basically, it's a small cup that goes on top of a regular cup.

The Slip Cup also features flaps on the inside to ensure that shots don't bounce in and then bounce out. Because they add extra weight to the cup, they can help prevent spilling. They are also numbered, which the inventors claim allows you to play "15 new drinking games."

Chase Treibt, who seems to be the brother spearheading the project, posted about the invention on Kickstarter to raise money for manufacturing costs. It quickly surpassed its $80,000 goal. The video advertisement they made for the page is pretty awesome. It's a slow-paced infomercial set to weirdly inspirational music:

I wish I had four brothers to invent stuff with... (via Slip Cup)
Speaking from the perspective of someone who tossed ye olde pong ball around quite a bit in college, it seems kind of cool but also kind of unnecessary? I feel like you lose a lot of the fun of the game when there's less room for uncertainty. But I'm sure there are some garage pong enthusiasts who will be thankful they don't have to worry about drinking dirt anymore. Oh, I forgot! They have thin rims. The rims are thin. Did I mention they have thin rims?
What are the rims like again? (via Slip Cup)
