Clumsy like me? You can prevent computercide with the Vector Cupholder

If you're clumsy like me, having a bottle of water or a cup of coffee near a Mac can be a recipe for disaster. VectorWerks' Vector Cupholder can help prevent "computercide" on your Mac. It's a gadget designed to prevent you from knocking over your drink and spilling it all over your Mac — or burning your laps.

Made of airplane-grade anodized aluminum, the Vector Cupholder weighs 3.5 ounces. When folded, it's less than 0.5 inches. It retails for $50.

The Vector Cupholder grips table edges as thick as 1.5 inches. It holds an assortment of containers from a 30-ounce "Trenti" to a small airplane cup, from Thermos bottles to soda cans, from water bottles to mugs up to three inches. 

By moving beverages off the table, the Vector Cupholder also delivers the added benefit of freeing up "real estate" on cramped work surfaces like coffeehouse tables and airplane trays. It can deploy it with one hand while your other hand is holding your cup.
