Swiveling Cupholder Won’t Spill Drinks When You Hoon

I have a big rule in my car, no cups without lids. I hate hitting a pothole or taking a turn and having something slosh all over the car. This is why I only put bottles with the lids on in the cupholders. If you are the sort who likes to take cups or cans with open tops on your commute, you need the Maksimatic cupholder.

As you turn and drive, the cup holder moves around so that your drink is always level. What that means to you and your car, is no splashes or sticky gunk to scrape off the console later.

I don’t know if this tech will ever come to cars from the factory. The good news is that you can buy the Maksimatic to retrofit to your car, assuming it reaches its goal on Kickstarter. The project seeks an oddly specific amount of $95,567 and has only raised about $5500 so far with 23 days to go. A pledge of $25(USD) will get you one with shipping starting this May.
