Cup holders are a beloved feature of the modern automobile because they keep your drink stable and close, ensuring that minimal work is needed to grab it. Our mission is to provide a cup holder for everyday use outside of vehicles. Our device will hold drinks of most sizes, and will keep them cool. Motion activation will raise the drink to a convenient height using a telescoping motion, and then lower to a sturdy position that is out of the way. The finished product will minimize the amount of work required to retrieve the drink, and grab some attention as a unique fixture in any living room, tailgate, or man cave.
