Overflowprotec stick / coffee stick

Overflowprotec stick
Overflowprotec stick

“Overflow protection stick” prevents overflow of coffee in a mug, by weakening frequency of vibration of it. Have you ever seen that coffee ran over the cup, while you were walking with a mug?
It is because of the resonance phenomena to amplify vibration, when frequency of vibration of an object(coffee in a mug) is the same with vibration of a stimulus from outside(repeated steps).
This concept is based on wisdom of life, and is designed using the method to float a leaf or a thin board on water in a bucket for preventing its overflow, when a person walks with it. Now, you can move safely even with several cups of coffee using this stick.
