For those that are serious about their beer pong, mechanical engineers William Heimsoth and Aaron Attebery have developed what they call the “world’s best beer pong cup”: Hexcup. Heimsoth and Attebery claim the Hexcups provide perfect reracks in a quarter of the time with no gaps, no ‘ghosting’ (when traditional cups move when placed on a wet surface), and exceptional durability.
The patent-pending shape of Hexcup breaks the surface tension of liquids on tables to prevent ‘ghosting.’ Hexcup features a honeycomb-inspired design, allowing for users to have perfect reracks and create unique reracks because of the distinctive shape. Hexcups are made from a durable plastic that is top-rack dishwasher safe, and are considered to be reusable.
Hexcup is still in its Kickstarter phase and has raised over $34,000 of its $50,000 goal with 19 days left. Early backers receive rewards depending on the donation size, from a set of Hexcups (22 Hexcups and three Hexcup-branded balls) for a pledge of $15 or more to two sets of Hexcups, and two Hexcup koozies, all delivered inside a custom beverage bucket for a pledge of $45 or more.
