Finally, you can Enjoy your Beverage Splash-Free while "ON-the-GO", with The SpilliNator!!! 

No more Splish-Splash Coffee Spill.

Save money on dry cleaning bills and car washes; additionally you will be doing something good for the environment!  For every hard green splash-stick you see at local coffee shops, we can make a handful of Sip-Tubes, and we use a more Eco-friendly material!   Plus you can actually drink from the SpilliNator!

Click the like and tweet button under the video above.  Just two clicks makes a HUGE difference in helping.  Your shirt, your car, and our landfills with thank you for it.  

  • OTHER BENEFITS:
  • Cheaper and far more environmentally friendly than splash-sticks.
  • Adds suction ability similar to that of a straw, while preventing those annoying leaks from the cup-crease.
  • Designed and tested to help those ailed by Parkinson’s enjoy coffee. 
  • Beneficial to mothers pushing their child in a stroller.
  • Enjoy more of your favorite beverage faster, with a widened sip-hole.
  • Prevents line-of-site blockage while sipping and driving, no tilt needed.
  • Keeps your beverage hotter, longer.
  • Reusable, variable colors and brandable.
  • Designed for an active on-the-go lifestyle.
  • Patent Pending utility and design patents. 

More cups of coffee are consumed every year than the population of humans, dogs, cars, planes, and trains combined on this planet every year, and that number is growing at a steady pace!  Some say over 825 Billion cups a year!  Its time someone did something to help minimize the "coffee impact".  Splash Sticks were great for 1900's, but this is 2014, people have active lifestyles.  We need something that prevents spill and splash, but that also allows us to enjoy our beverage "on-the-go".

The SpilliNator does exactly that..and then some!

Medical/Safety Factors : we at Sip-Tube have witnessed friends with Parkinson's have a hard time, attempting to simply enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.  We had hoped to be able to help.  So we worked with a friend to ensure our product would help them safely enjoy a hot beverage, splash-free.

Mothers seem to love the SpilliNator the most.  Placing a leaky lid into the cup holder of child's stroller can be dangerous.  The SpilliNator comes to the rescue of children and mothers everywhere, by helping to keep hot drinks where they belong, in the cup! 

We have worked hard on our Patents and Prototypes.  We have incredibly strong national/international patents, both utility and design to help protect us.  We even made a small sample run to test the markets.  Giving them out to people at local coffee shops...they instantly understood what it was and how to use it...but most of all, they were amazed by how simple it was, and wanted to know where and when they will be available everywhere.  We came to Kickstarter to help get the word out.

Risks and challenges

We fast tracked the patents and expect issuing in the next three months or less. We will launch the North America Market first.

Originally we tried to integrate the sip-tube into lids (as you can see above), but that only helped a tiny bit. In order to prevent "95%-plus" of spills and splash, the SpilliNator needed to be manufactured separately, and with multiple complex angles and designs that are to complicated and expensive for standard lid manufacturing. Either way, together or separated, its virtually the same amount of costs and materials needed for both, but we achieve "FAR" greater results by separating the components. One size sip-tube fits most popular lids.

ECONOMICS OF COFFEE:
From Wikipedia; Over 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed in the world every day. Americans consume 400 million cups of coffee per day, equivalent to 146 billion cups of coffee per year in the US alone, and 825 billion worldwide. The average adult drinks about 400 cups of coffee annually. About half of United States adults wake up to an oversized cup of coffee. Over 90% of coffee production takes place in developing countries, while consumption happens mainly in the industrialized economies, such as the North America and Europe. Coffee employees over 20 million people worldwide everyday. It is also the most consumed drug and beverage in the world.

If not for you, your shirt, or your car...do it for all the little old ladies out there :)
