Lolo Lids the Ultimate Beer Koozie

CA$ 50,269

958

Have you ever been to a beach? Ever wanted to have a beer at the beach? Maybe in the park? Lolo lids is a beer koozie for people who want to enjoy a cold beverage of their choice without the whole world knowing about it.

Lolo lids looks like your average coffee cup lid from the top, but the bottom is where the magic happens. A snap fitting holds your beer in by the upper rim suspending it in the cup. Sliding the suspended beer into any standard coffee cup creates an air insulated super koozie that disguises your drink and keeps it ice cold. Lolo lids are ergonomically designed to fit your lips and nose to ensure the nicest drinking experience. Additionally, the secondary breather tube allows consistent even flow.

This small red tube pictured above is a huge part of the Lolo experience. By allowing the can to breathe your drink flows out smoothly.  This stops the beer from foaming up and feels more like drinking from a glass than a can or coffee cup.  The tube is also on an opposing angle from the spout insuring that it stays full of air not beer.  The two recessions on the top of the lid accommodate your lips and nose because unlike a can your face isn't flat. Snap fittings on the bottom keep your beer in place while you're on the move no matter what you're up to.  

The ease and speed of of exchanging cans with this system is extraordinary, plus you'll never find yourself stuck with a cup full of foam!

We have been working on Lolo Lids for over a year and have created numerous iterations and prototypes. We rigorously tested every prototype to find weakness in the design and uncover ways to improve usability. After a full summer of festival, beach, and park testing we are finally ready to share Lolo Lids with the world.

We are adding a stretch goal!

If we get to $100,000 we are going to offer all buyers a collapsable silicone cup for an additional $10. The cup will be able to go in your pocket with your lid for easy transport. 

The Lolo Lid will be manufactured from a food and dishwasher safe silicone and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) to deliver a product that has the right flex and rigidity to be used time and time again. Lolo Lids will be manufactured with the environment in mind.

 Lolo lids is a product that lets you have a beer on a bus, taxi, ferry or on a walk downtown, but please be responsible.  Have fun, don't be stupid!

Risks and challenges

Our goal is to have Lolo lids shipped out for February 2016 . This is, however, our first time developing a new product, so there is sure to be challenges. Lolo lids is going to made a of a hard rubber material that is both strong enough to hold a beer and flexible enough to be indestructible. There are thousands of types of material so it might take a bit of testing to get the right one There's already a couple of companies who want to make the product and the next part is figuring out who is the right fit. We won't ship until we are 100% satisfied with the product, but we'll keep you updated along the way!
