What Do You Think of This Denver Invention, Hot Straw?
Hot Straw fits right through that hole in a Starbuck's lid and lets you sip a drink from a straw, instead of spilling it all over that fancy blouse when you hit a pothole. It's also reusable and dishwasher safe. It was invented by Colorado's own Dawn Miracle while working on research trials for Parkinson’s disease. She realized that the disease (and accompanying shaking tremors) kept patients from enjoying the simple pleasure of a nice, hot beverage.
So she sought out to create a straw that was designed to “take the heat,” but also shaped it to fit the sipping hole of a to-go coffee lid just in case her patients had a bad case of tremors. Soon, all her friends were asking for it.
So what do you think? Worthy idea?
