Slip Cup is an unobtrusive cup insert that improves a party favorite without affecting user interface

The Slip Cup is a small container built to fit on the top of red solo cups and catch the ball during a game of beer pong. For those who have never been to a frat party, beer pong is played by two sides. Sides alternate turns trying to throw a ping-pong ball into a triangular formation of six cups of beer. If a ball lands in a cup, the player on that side of the table drinks.

Besides the obvious—and intentionally pursued—problem of overdrinking, beer pong is a frighteningly effective vector for disease. A study by Clemson University students found that up to 200 different kinds of bacteria are living on a ping pong ball while playing inside and up to three million if played outdoors. When the ball lands in beer, some of that bacteria enters the drink.
