Many college students will face a tough decision in their life as to whether to spend their dwindling funds on beer or household items like cups. With the The Kinkajou Bottle Cutter, beer drinkers have one less thing to worry about.

Created by Patrick Lehoux and named after the South American mammal with big teeth, The Kinkajou Bottle Cutter is a portable, easy-to-store device that can transform a discarded beer bottle into a functional and stylish (depending on the brand of beer) cup. Unlike most bottle cutters, which are big and clunky, Lehoux's design is small and is used to score the bottle, which is then separated by using hot water.

After the upper portion of the bottle has been removed, simply sand down the edges and welcome the newest member to the beer cup family.
