Girl invents Kangaroo Cup – an anti-spill cup for her grandfather

About the solution

When she was eight years old, Lily noticed that her grandfather’s Parkinson’s was causing him to spill his drinks, so she decided to do something about it. She initially created a ceramic cup with three legs to help keep it upright on a table without tipping, and to keep it steady on uneven surfaces. This evolved into a microwaveable, dishwasher-safe plastic cup that could be mass-produced called the Kangaroo Cup.

Thanks to a successful Kickstarter project, Lily’s cups are available to the public, and they have a invaluable to many who suffer from conditions that cause them unsteadiness.
