Don’t you loathe when you’re holding your latte in one hand and your iPhone in the other, then suddenly need to respond to a text that requires you to put your coffee down in order to use your other hand to text, thus interrupting the constant flow of caffeine to your mouth? Welp, if you answered yes, you’re in luck texting fiends. Behold: The UpperCup — an iPhone case with a cupholder that lets you text while still holding onto that warm cup of espresso juice.
The idea comes from Natwerk, a company currently seeking funding on Indiegogo. An UpperCup for the iPhone 4 would run you at $25, with the iPhone 5 case going for $30.
While the idea itself is amusing, I’m a bit hesitant on the practicality of the product. What happens if you go into rapid-texting mode and accidentally spill your piping hot drink all over yourself? As the peeps over at Incredible Things explained, it would probably result in your “phone short circuiting” and you crying over spilled coffee.
