Cup to clean beer pong balls seeks funds

A smart new gadget to help clean-up the world’s favourite drinking game has been pitched online in the hope of finding the funds to put it into production.

97884079a04c5ac4c2e3ddf89b59dc75_largeThe Clean Cup is a battery operated, table top unit that seeks to replace the “wash cup” — normally a cup of still water used to dunk a dropped ball in an attempt to clean it before a successful shot is thrown into a beer cup [see below for video].

Using a combination of pressurised water and bursts of air to ensure full cleaning coverage, it’s a case of simply placing a ball in the cup and pressing a button. The ball is cleaned before being pushed to the top of the cup again, “floating” on a stream of air as if it was sitting in the regular wash cup.

The whole process takes only five seconds — the perfect amount of time to ensure a clean ball between turns.

The Clean Cup also comes with a removable and reusable filter to catch all of the dirt that the balls will inevitably collect on a night of drunken reverie. It’s a simple case of slipping the filter in before the night starts, and giving it a quick rinse once the party is over.

The history of the cup spawns from a college engineering project in 2004 by then-student of the University of British ColumbiaTyler Dobush, who years later teamed up with graphic designer Zach Hallam to help his vision come to life.

With offers for early-bird investors like branded t-shirts and the opportunity to create your own Clean Cup design, people are being encouraged to donate now to help see the prospect of perpetually clean beer pong balls become a reality.

Investors have 28 days to pledge as much as they can to reach the $40,000 target.
