No, seriously. Wine in a can.

Here’s the deal. Some Swedish designers got together (booze involved, debatable) and created a can with the sole purpose of holding wine. I wouldn’t doubt one bit that it was a complicated and expensive process. So they’ve accomplished that, clearly unsatisfied with wine glasses and bottles, and now they wait at wine-can.com. Just sit and wait for hits.

Can for your wine?

Any takers? You can put your wine in it!

We already designed it. Did all that work for you.

Someone?

They are “currently looking for investors”. I know there’s a market for everything but…well, the empty webpage speaks for itself. [Wine-Can via OhGizmo!]

Designer Laurent Corio has come up with a way to ditch the status-symbol cup and graduate to an adult drinking apparatus; an apparatus by the name of “To Go”. Yes, it may look like a shroom, and yes, it appears to hold about a shot’s worth of liquid. But hey, what price wouldn’t you pay for class– anytime, anywhere.

Yeah, I probably definitely still wouldn’t use it. But it’s an amusing design to observe, nonetheless. And at least somebody’s thinking; we can’t use sippy-cups forever.

You can drink your coffee leisurely, elegantly sipping from your cup then resting it on its saucer. If that isn’t working for you, the saucer becomes a lid, allowing you to hit the road. The saucer contains a small hole, of course, for your drinking pleasure.

Bottom line, this phails; for me, anyway. Every concept can’t be perfect. But again, someone is trying. I don’t see anyone else coming up with anything. What do you guys think? Hit the comments. [Laurent Corio]
