WTF of the Year: The Self-Stirring Coffee Cup

No more votes, people. We have a winner. This is the definitive lazy-ass product. The self-stirring coffee mug from Gevalia. It runs on two AAA batteries and takes whatever self-respect you had and flushes it down the toilet.


Word is they're developing a device to not only make and stir the coffee, but lift it to your open mouth so that you may take gentle sips while driving.

Please disregard the "hand-wash" instructions. This item is completely dishwasher safe!

Insulated stainless steel gently stirs your beverage at the push of a button. Keeps coffee hot for hours. With snap-on, see-through sipper lid. 12-oz. capacity. Includes 2 AAA batteries. Hand wash. Imported. $18.95

coffee mugs are forever spawning stupid products like this. My friend had one in high school - it went on your dashboard and you placed your steaming hot cup o joe on it. The platform moved when you took a corner, using physics to prevent a spill. Bullshit. That thing ended up in pieces on I-95.
