There are so many cool and innovative things being offered on Kickstarter, and so many times, we feel like pledging for it but balk at the prices. The Pint is an extremely affordable Kickstarter product that will make the perfect gift for just about anyone; your 8-year-old newphew to your 100-year-old great grandmother will love it for its multi-purpose functional simplicity.
The Pint hit its $10,000 goal in just 9 hours of the project going live on Kickstarter. It is essentially a vacuum flask, a water bottle and a pint all rolled into one handy and compact thingamajig. Starting at just $26, The Pint is an easy to clean insulated stainless steel water bottle that can be transformed into a cup. Pick your poison, and whatever it is, it should be able to stay hot or cool for a long period of time.
The Pint has been designed with all beverages in mind and the ability of it being able to transform into a cup is to better match its contents. One of the beauties of camping is that you pack only the essentials. Many people still pack a bottle and a separate cup for coffee or beer, The Pint is designed to be used with all your beverages.
School kids would be able to impress their friends with their bottle by transforming it into a cup during lunch time, and adults would also be able to secretly impress their friends by serving their drinks in this nifty little bottle/cup when they come over for a house visit. It could even be given out as party favors so that guests could use it then and there and bring it home, this would be more environmentally friendly as it reduces the use of plastic cups.
The base of the cup is removable to allow for easy cleaning. There is no need for any heavy duty bottle brushes as the base is large enough to get your whole hand in there to clean it out, unless you have freakishly large hands like Yao Ming's.
The Pint stores about 500ml of liquid (which is the actual equivalent of what a real pint would hold) and comes in two colors: Granite and Carbon. If you pledge for more Pint bottles, the higher the discount for each one would be, and you could even pledge up to 100 Pint bottles, which would make an awesome wedding door gift.
