Ford’s New Patent Will Keep Your Coffee Safe
September 1st, 2017
If you've ever had the problem of your coffee flying out of your cup while driving, listen up because Ford has the answer to all of your problems. Ford has just patented a self-leveling cup holder to help keep your beverage in your cup regardless of acceleration, deceleration or whatever else may happen while you’re driving.
According to Motor1, the design works by placing the cup holder at the center of a simple gimbal, which pivots based on the external forces. A weight at the bottom of the holder assists the gimbal in tilting in the correct direction. This sounds like it could be a good idea, but we’ll see if it actually works in real life situations. Let us know in the comments what you think.
This weekend along with all the tech coming out of our shops, we roll a MATCO Tools truck into the PowerNation studio for Katie. Their V.P. of Marketing joins Katie and fills the studio with the latest line of MATCO Tool boxes called Revel. Check it all out Sunday morning at 9am ET on Spike.
