If “Oh come on, what the?!” came to mind when you saw this, you can sit next to me. The SpillNot doesn’t look like a time-saver, but it claims to be a real coffee saver. Preventing spills with the magic of physics, its flexible loop handle cannot deliver a lateral acceleration to the saucer or the cup. As the handle moves horizontally, the saucer and cup swing up slightly in the opposite direction, balancing everything out so the liquid stays in the cup. Apparently, even if you swing the cup around like a moron, you won’t spill any coffee. Confused? Me too. See the video, courtesy of ThinkGeek, below.
