Story Behind the Invention

Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to find everyday items that you just had in your hand minutes ago. These items include keys, eyeglasses, remote controls, toysthe list goes on. They become easily lost due to their small size, often falling in between seat cushions or under furniture, with no means to easily locate them. Other times, they may be accidentally carried from one room and left in another. As any parent will tell you, one item you do not want to lose is a sippy cup. Not only is the act of looking for it frustrating in itself, but when an infant is crying, the aggravation and sense of urgency is multiplied. Also, should a child find and drink from a cup that contains milk or other liquid which spoils quickly after being lost for days, the risk of the child becoming sick is very high. Accordingly, there is a need for a means by which sippy cups can be easily found when misplaced. The development of the Childs Cup with Integral Locating Device fulfills this need.

Parents of two children, Inventors Daril Montgomery & Carly Montgomery of Ivel, Kentucky have developed a wireless locating system for a childs drinking cup in order to solve this dilemma.

Utilizing wireless technology, this clever innovation quickly and easily locates lost cups. The transmitter base sends a wireless signal to the cup-mounted receiver with the simple touch of a button. Once detected, the cup will emit an audible signal for easy locating. For added convenience, the cups receiver is removable to allow for washing. To recharge, the cup is simply placed on the transmitter base. The use of the Childs Cup with Integral Locating Device reduces frustration and saves money spent on replacing cups, while maintaining all of the convenience and functionality of traditional sippy cups.
