The Zipper Cup is the latest and greatest in the world in home design.

These cute, liquid-holding devices have an exceptional zipper detail that runs down the side of the cup. Although the Zipper Cup cannot actually be opened or zipped closed, it does hold both hot and cold liquidâ€"and comes with coasters. That has got to count for something.

Implications - There aren't too many ways to reinvent something as straightforward as a cup, but charming aesthetic embellishments are still a simple and effective way for companies to easily set their products apart from their more basic peers. Products like this have a charming and lighthearted appeal, and for people looking to fill their life with amusing distractions that is definitely a positive.
