FOLD A CUP / FOLD A CUP

FOLD A CUP

Are you okay with indirect kisses? This design will allow you to avoid indirect contact with other people, because you will be able to fold the spot that you'll be using. Whenever we want to drink something by using a used cup, we always look at the cup carefully before taking a sip, to avoid 'contact' with the spot (the lip-touching area) where other people may have made. Technically, there is no harm by drinking from the same spot, however, there is that unexplainable awkwardness, especially when the 'others' are of different sex. This design is based on this very problem that we may face occasionally.
