Devils Lake Native Wants to Add a Handle to Your Cups and Cans
Brandon Pulst is a native of Devils Lake and he is a member of the North Dakota National Guard. He has an idea that he is hoping will catch on.
The invention is called 'MuggUp.' This is a handle that will attach to a can or a cup and essentially turn those items into mugs. You can see a demonstration of how the product works below.
Pulst is trying to get this product out there via Kickstarter. Pulst is hoping to raise $8,500 by the end of the month to start producing the product in bulk. So far the project has raised just $156.
According to the Kickstarter page, this is how Pulst explains the background of the product:
I developed the MuggUp from ideas my cousins came up with during a family gathering where we play cribbage (a card game) and hangout. I have background in 3D modeling and a 3D printer that turned the idea into a working prototype called the Muggit, which evolved to the Original MuggUp after making tons of little changes.
I have been working on several product designs of my own over the past few years, while MuggUp is the most simple it is also the most unique and the one I like the most.
Regardless, Pulst's creation seems a lot more slick than the other products that are already out there.
We reached out to Pulst for more information but he did not respond to messages via e-mail or Facebook.
We'll see if this works out for Pulst but for now it seems he has a handle on things. I'll show myself the door.
