Pretty cool portable cup

I like the idea of it - super compact and pretty light weight:

I wish it was 12oz (or 16oz) instead of 8oz though. If it works well I'm sure we'll see all sizes in a few years though.

Different mechanism, but reminds me of these:

Not worth the $24 dollars they are asking for the Hunu cup. I do like the compactness...but as Jeffro showed there are other options for a fraction of price and you can get them now and not in a couple of months.

here you go if you don't need a lid

I wonder if something from hydro flask or yeti would fit on there.

Is 8oz a real serving of anything?

That's about right for a serving of whiskey.

That's perfect! Strange that the kickstarter is inventing something that already exists and is cheaper - maybe they just needed to make a lid for the Sea to Summit cup?

i thought something like that would be great for serving bowls to save space. of course i stack smaller serving bowls inside larger bowls. By the time i added up a stack of collapsed bowls I wasn't saving any space or weight. Spent $5 at the dollar store instead of the $50 I was about to spend.

Welcome to Kickstarter.

Most of the time you are just fueling some new Industrial Design Student's dream of getting rich...not a realistic product. I was all for kickstarer when it started until I thought about it harder. I think you miss a key step of a successful business when you have to go through financing it and kickstarter makes it way to easy to do so with a basically consequence free funding source.

Way too many crowd funded projects get 75% of the way through, run out of money, and you never get the product you pay for and the people running it just get away with it. Its modern day snake oil salesman mixed with highway robbery as far as I'm concerned. Most of the stuff being funded is just a rehash or minor revision of a product that already exists such as the one in this thread and its often more expensive by quite a bit.
