We've all done it: knocked over a cup of coffee/sodie/water/vodka tonic at work and ruined something important. Like my entire week. Jayme Smaldone and his Mighty Mug cohorts blew out an important office computer with a spill. But instead of swearing and slamming doors and whining could their mamas please just make bacon mac 'n' cheese with Corn Flake topping for dinner about it, they developed the unknockable Mighty Mug so such catastrophic events would never happen again.
Built with the team's patented Smartgrip Technology, the Mighty Mug guarantees that the occasional brushes, bumps, and whacks accompanying liquid consumption will no longer send your drinks flying. Check out the GIF here. In addition, while Smartgrip suction creates an airlock powerful enough to resist lateral force and prevent spills, its pressure instantly normalizes when upward force is applied, and the airlock lifts easily. In other words, you can pick a Mighty Mug up and put it down like any other mug.
Mighty Mugs will be available in 3 different styles. The Mighty Mug Go Stainless Steel is a double-walled, vacuum-insulated container that keeps beverages hot for 6+ hours or cold for 14+ hours. It holds 18 ounces of liquid. Mighty Mug Solos are 11- and 12-oz mugs made for people who want a coffee carrier that fits under a single-serve coffee maker. And Mighty Mug Ice cups are designed for summer sipping, and constructed with unbreakable, BPA-free Tritan plastic. They have 20-ounce capacities.
Mighty Mugs run as a Kickstarter campaign through September 26, 2014.
