These People Made Beer Pong Better (and More Sanitary) with Science

Strong Arm Cups is a new invention on Kickstarter that allows you to keep your beer pong balls and cups clean

Do you hear that? Fraternities everywhere just let out a cheer.

Beer pong may be one of the most popular “sports” for college kids, but if you think about it, it’s not very sanitary. Both the ball and the cups get dirty from constantly being passed around and hitting the sticky frat room floor. We never thought we’d say this, but a team of people have come up with a revolutionary update to the classic beer pong game. 

Strong Arm Cups comes with 20 disposable red Solo-esque cups that are never actually filled with beer. Instead, players put the damper inserts inside the cups, assuring that beer pong balls won’t bounce out or make the precious swill contents grimy. Players drink instead from personal cups, each with perfectly measured lines for game play.


It sounds pretty simple, and right now the team at Strong Arm Cups is in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign, complete with cheesy bathroom humor, of course. If you buy one early, they’re offering kits for $20, but they’ll usually go for $30, which seems a bit steep for one successful (and clean) night of drunken debauchery. But if you’re interested, the product is expected to launch this December.
