Drink Plate: Disposable Plate with Drink Holder

The Drink Plate: The disposable plate with a delightful drink holder. The problem with disposable plates is you can't hold the plate, eat your food, and hold your drink at the same time. You basically need a third hand! The patent-pending Drink Plate (TM) is the first disposable plate that transforms to put a drink holder right where you need it - at arm's reach. A series of clever cuts allow a platform to almost magically spiral out from beneath the plate. This provides a stable rest for almost any beverage: soda cans, beer bottles, and of course the ubiquitous plastic party cup. Having your drink with you prevents others from accidentally drinking your beverage, and allows you to mingle and socialize freely. It also frees up a hand to greet others, exchange business cards, etc. The design of the Drink Plate allows a stack of plates to pack flat. This saves room in shipping and merchandising. It is completely manufacturable using current thermo-forming and die-cutting technologies

Not sure it works??

What about when you have a 'full' cup or can...wouldn't the weight be too much for a flimsy plate? A full or near full cup would spill all over the place...wouldn't it? I love the idea though...good luck.

Invest in the finest One-hand plate

I read your comment about wanting to invest in the One-hand, food & drink plate. Here is a huge opportunity for you. I invented the finest, best priced One-hand plate on the market. I have both the design and utility patent and the trademark for my plate. Our 2010 sales are up 448% over 2009. There are numerous opportunities on our doorstep that would make it possible for us to sell hundreds of millions of plates yearly. All we need is some working capital. We are poised to make 2011 a phenominal year. I invite you to contact me.

No Problem

I didn't realize it was so hard to put a drink down on ANY flat surface.
