Standing well / Cup coaster

Standing well
Standing well

This is a cup coaster which can fix our cup on the table, with the current device which is built inside, when we turn on this cup coaster, it can become an electromagnet based on the theory of “electricity current produces magnetic fields”. It’s a little like a small version of straddle carrier which is used to handle containers. Especially the magnet which produced in this way usually has a powerful magnetic force, once we put a cup on this cup coaster, it will be attracted very well, and there’s no need to worry about the cup be moved again.

From now on, even there’s some kids playing around, we don’t have to worry about the cup anymore.
