Mighty Mug: A Mug That Sticks To Any Flat Surface (Photos)

Remember those suction cup things in the Mission: Impossible movies? It looks like some miracle worker has applied the principle behind those devices to a much more practical purpose: A mug that won’t tip over. It’s the Mighty Mug, actually said to be inspired by suction cups in the natural world (like those found on octopus tentacles), and it can stick to almost any flat surface you’re likely to find in your home or office.

The suction cup that gives Mighty Mug its grip is called Smartgrip Technology, which actually does regular suction cups one better by being effortless to lift vertically while preventing the Mighty Mug from tipping over. This means that the pranking potential for a Mighty Mug is seriously diminished, but it does make it a lot easier to drink from.

The Mighty Mug has a little over a week to go in its Kickstarter campaign here, where you can pre-order one for $20. But its well past its original fundraising goal, so you can expect to see it become more widely available soon. And you can see a few photos of the Mighty Mug in the gallery below.
