About

The iCup & iPlate is an interlocking system that enables you to carry your plate of food, drink and utensils all with just one hand.

Regular plates and cups require both hands to carry them at the same time. They are also a hassle when you are trying to eat, meet and greet people or carry any additional item because your hands are now full.

Not Anymore!

Enjoy having a hand free and feel great with the intelligently designed iCup & iPlate. (Patents Pending)

Have you ever wanted to carry two plates of food and two drinks for you and your date, friend or child? With the iPlate and iCup you simply slide your iCup under your iPlate, it locks in place and off you go.

You now have a hand free so that you can greet people as you mix and mingle at a BBQ, tailgating event or any social gathering.

Forever gone are the days of the plate over the cup greeting balancing act that we once had to do in order to get that one hand free to eat or shake another's hand. in the past I have done it and failed on more than a few occasions. This left either my drink or my plate of food all over me and the ground (not a pretty sight).

The Fumble

You will also eliminate the infamous elbow bump. Ever have your hands full with your cup and plate and just settled for the very informal "elbow bump greeting?"

So there you have it, you will always have a free hand with the intelligently designed iCup & iPlate!

But wait there's more!

The added ingenuity of the intelligently designed iPlate is that the iFork and iKnife snap into place on the sides of your plate so you never have to worry about your utensils dropping or flying off.

And what about this...

Have you ever had your cup in one hand and the plate in the other and there were no tables available to eat at?  

Well now with the iCup & iPlate and the attachable iFork & iKnife you no longer need a table or surface to enjoy your meal. 

And YES we have you covered... 

The intelligently designed iPlate also acts as a cover for your drink. This way there is no need to worry about flies, bugs or other unwanted objects going into your drink … we all hate that!

The iPlate covers your drink

... and yes you can reuse the plates

The iPlates are dishwasher and microwave safe and the iCups are disposable, yet hand washable and both are above par in design due to their cool octagon shape and interlocking capability.

WHY iNEED YOUR HELP  

After several rounds of development and trying different designs we finally came up with a seamless design that offers convenience, ease of use and true intelligence that exceeds your casual dining needs. 

Initially I fully produced everything for an initial design that I just knew would work. The initial iCup & iPlate was designed so that the iCup would go under the iPlate and then "TWIST" into place. After everything was produced I realized that this design could be even further improved as people had to actually look "UNDER" the plate to see where the cup needed to go in order to twist it in place. This design would require a person to have to lift their plate of food in the air to attach the iCup.

I had to make it even better.

Back to the drawing board I had to go with the goal of making the action of attaching your iCup to your iPlate effortless. I then came up with the rail system. The rail system allows you to gently squeeze your iCup right under your iPlate and almost effortlessly slide onto the rail where it securely locks into place. Then when you are ready for a sip of your drink you just gently squeeze the iCup and slide it back out. Also instead of two iCups (9oz & 18oz) out the gate I decided to go with a 14oz iCup that will nicely hold the contents of any standard bottle or can you wish to pour inside of it, as well as, any other drinks of your choice.

Finally after much trial and error I am ready to go. I already have the plastic factory working with me to make this happen and i need your support to get to the finish line. Your pledges will help me to make the final molds and begin full production of the iCup & iPlate.  

The factory is working with me and I am already producing the plastic iFork line of utensils. The intelligently designed iFork line of utensils is designed specifically to snap in securely to the sides of your iPlate.  In addition to this cool feature they are also designed to rise off of your table surfaces, which keeps germs off your utensils and food from soiling your surfaces.

TIMELINE

We are ready to go and need your help to make it possible. To produce the final molds it will take forty-five days and we can have your iCups & iPlates to you in time to celebrate the upcoming holidays. Our goal is to get them to you in time for Thanksgiving so you can enjoy the benefits of your new intelligently designed iCups & iPlates and show them off to family and friends.

PLEASE SHARE

If you like what I have created I ask that you please share with your network of family and friends and social media followers. This is an independent project and all the caring, help, sharing and support we can get will help us influence the world with intelligently designed products. This began as a vision that i have worked diligently to bring to fruition. I hope you enjoy it and share it with others as I share it with you.

Risks and challenges

While there are risks and challenges with every project I have honestly come too far to turn back now. I have strong relationships with the plastic factory that I am currently doing business with, however some of the challenges that may come about is final packaging of all of the products. This is something that I still have to work out and determine the design and type of packing the products will be placed in. I am very confident that in the end there is enough time to solve all of the problems and get your pledges to you in time for the end of the year holiday season.
