Designed for comfort and convenience
Our goal with handSteady is to give you the best possible drinking experience. So we've developed a number of new innovations, each with their own set of features:
1. Curved RimTM technology
The rim of a cup is an important area for comfort, flow of liquid and managing drips after sipping. The handSteady Curved Rim innovation is a carefully designed rim with the following features:
Comfortable - making it Comfortable for lips when connecting with the cup.
Curved Inside Wall - to direct liquid to the centre of your mouth.
Hand Finished - to ensure rim is smooth to touch.
Drip management - stops ugly drip stains forming on outside of the cup.
2. State of the Art material
As you could be using handSteady on a daily basis for extended periods, we've invested in using State of the Art materials to provide the following benefits:
Light weight (31% lighter than standard cups) - making it easy to hold.
Dishwasher safe - so you can keep it hygienic with minimal effort.
Stain resistant - resisting both visible and taste stains.
Shatter proof - so unlike ceramic it doesn't shatter if dropped.
Food and drink safe - made from FDA approved food safe materials.
0oC - 100oC - suitable for both hot and cold drinks.
Colour matched to bone-china - to ensure it looks good in any situation.
3. Rotatable HandleTM technology
This feature is what makes handSteady so different to any other cup. It's a patent pending mechanism comprising of ball bearings and a strong fastening structure. Here are the features:
Two self-lubricating bearings - to be dishwasher safe & always smooth.
Smooth rotating - so you can move it elegantly, with little effort.
Stays upright - using gravity (see how it works).
Tilts easily - in 5 ways impossible with other cups (see how it works).
Keeps steady - despite unwanted motion (see how it works).
360 degree revolution - so you can hold it at any comfortable angle.
Highly discrete - the mechanism is hidden within the handle.
4. Ergonomic Geometry
Where you place things on a cup, alongside the sizes and shapes of various elements, makes a big difference to how easy a cup is to use. So handSteady has a careful balance between what all the elements that make a great cup:
Elegant design - based on a fine-bone china cup; ideal for any setting.
250ml (8oz) capacity - so you can use with one cup kettles & get a full cup.
Handle close to axis of gravity - to ensure the cup feels light.
Rim diameter 7cm wide - to reduce amount you need to lean your head back.
Base diameter 7cm wide - to increase stability when placing on table.
Straight Exterior wall - to enable both wide base and rim diameters.
Angled Interior wall - to reduce the amount you need to lean your head back.
11cm Tall - to increase stability by lowering centre of gravity.
5. Double ArcTM handle design
We knew from the outset that the handle design would be an important feature as it needed to work for as many people as possible - all of whom might have different requirements:
