- With the Spill Not, the liquid in the cups does not spill or slosh in the cup, and the cup doesn't slide when carried or swung around. This is because the loop handle is very flexible and cannot deliver a lateral acceleration to the cup, which is usually what makes beverages spill from an open container not tipped.
- DURABLE yet elegant hanging tray for a single open beverage that can be swung all around with an incredibly small risk of spilling.

May the Centripetal Force be With You - The Spill Not provides the ultimate solution for carrying cups of hot coffee and other beverages for long distances without ever having to worry about spilling them again. A simple hanging saucer consisting of a base and loop handle, the Spill Not is not only incredibly effective, but fun to use. With the Spill Not, the liquid in the cups does not spill or slosh in the cup, and the cup doesnt slide when carried or swung around. This is because the loop handle is very flexible and cannot deliver a lateral acceleration to the cup, which is usually what makes beverages spill from an open container not tipped. (Please Note: the 'Elements of Genius' mug in the photo is not included, but is also available for separate purchase.) The fundamental concepts of Newtonian physics explain why this amazing tray can be used to carry and swing a full open cup of coffee (or any liquid) with no spills! Durable yet elegant hanging tray for a single open beverage that can be swung all around with an incredibly small risk of spilling. Amazingly effective! The cool physics is that the liquid does not spill or slosh in the cup and the cup does not tend to slide on the Spill Not as it is carried, even if it is swung all around. Why not? The answer is that the loop handle (lets think of it as a thread) is very flexible and cannot deliver a lateral acceleration to the cup, which is what usually makes liquid spill from an open container that is not tipped. Warning - If bumped, spillage may occur. Not for use with liquids that are hot enough to scald. Not recommended for moving vehicles. Not for children under 3 years of age.

An added, unanticipated, bonus is that I can carry my iPad and my coffee in the same hand now by simply hooking a finger through the strap and holding the iPad. No more tucking my device under my arm to open doors!
Swing it around and the cup just sits there.
People look at you -- and marvel -- well, they are looking at the cup, really, but as an exhibitionist ... :)
My personal opinion is that this is a gimbal although I have nothing official to back that assertion up. From Wikipedia:
"A gimbal is a pivoted support that allows the rotation of an object about a single axis. A set of three gimbals, one mounted on the other with orthogonal pivot axes, may be used to allow an object mounted on the innermost gimbal to remain independent of the rotation of its support (e.g. vertical in the first animation). For example, on a ship, the gyroscopes, shipboard compasses, stoves, and even drink holders typically use gimbals to keep them upright with respect to the horizon despite the ship's pitching and rolling.
"The gimbal suspension used for mounting compasses and the like is sometimes called a Cardan suspension after Italian mathematician and physicist Gerolamo Cardano (1501–1576) who described it in detail. However, Cardano did not invent the gimbal, nor did he claim to. The device has been known since antiquity and may not have a single identifiable inventor."
[By the way, Cardano was quite a guy: read, for example, Cardano's Cosmos: The Worlds and Works of a Renaissance Astrologer by Anthony Grafton. If lines like this fascinate you, you will love this book: "the continuity of the astrological tradition is, perhaps, unmatched in the intellectual history of the West".]
And if that doesn't turn you on, playing with this will. I had the greatest fun with a tiny a bowl and a Betta splendens swinging around my head.
My Rent-a-Kid showed me a couple of great moves as well.

Now go away. I want more coffee.
Update: I read a review that complained about the ribbon. It is thick and stiff so that when you let go it doesn't fall into your coffee. I thought it was strange at first, but once I got used to it I understand how it works. Seriously, I can fill my cup almost to the brim and not spill a drop. It's saved my floors/carpet and saved me time spot cleaning.
The person I got this for is a bit accident prone, they use it everyday and absolutely love it. I think this product would be great for the elderly, disabled/handicapped, someone with health/medical problems, someone coming out of surgery/rehabilitation, or someone who's accident prone. Thanks for an awesome product!
