At my work, the walk from the break room back to our labs is fraught with coffee-spilling potential. Until now we simply had to put up with it. But now an inventive PhD candidate named Stefan has come up with a solution that harnesses centrifugal force to keep his coffee in the mug. No joke, he actually uses this thing to carry his coffee to and fro, and though the cup sways quite a bit, it doesn't spill! I took this video on my camera and I promise it's real.
Technically we shouldn't have drinks in the labs anyway, but we have an awesome, very laid-back Safety Officer who doesn't give anyone a hard time about it. That would be me. I figure my safety requires allowing grouchy labmates their caffeine.
