The premise of the Folding Cup is that, at a party, you are forever in danger of grabbing somebody else’s paper cup.

Designer Jaehyung Hong solves this problem with tiny fold up tabs around the base, each carrying a number, letter or symbol from a deck of cards:

Folding Cup

So. The procedure: First, choose a code and twist the tabs to mark your drink.

Second. Try to remember it.

Third, try to both read and remember the code after several cocktails.

See the problem? The concept will probably never surface, but don’t despair.

The time honored method still works: write your name on the cup with a sharpie. And use big letters.
