11-Year-Old Invents Unbreakable Cup, and Helps Combat the Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease

Who would have thought that an eleven-year-old's invention could change the way we see solutions? Lily Born is one inspiring young lady and the designer of the Kangaroo Cup. Inspired by her sick grandfather who is living with Parkinson's disease, which is causing his hands to shake severely, little Lily has found a way for her granddad not to spill his drinks anymore.

 

When Lily was nine, she created the three-legged ceramic Kangaroo Cup for her grandfather, took it to Kickstarter, and raised over $6,000 for a 30-day production of the cup. Now that Lily is 11, she is back on Kickstarter, but this time her Kangaroo Cup is “unbreakable.” The new plastic version of the Kangaroo Cup is expected to be even more desirable and useful for people with Parkinson's.

The Kangaroo Cup is stable because of its three legs, and it doesn't spill due to the top edge of the cup that bends on the inside. The cup also comes in cute and attractive colours. Apart from those with Parkinson's, the cup could also be in demand for younger kids. Little Miss Born has already raised more than $45,000 in donations, and the Kangaroo Cup is supposed to start shipping in October.

 

See the Kickstarter video where charming Lily talks about the idea of the Kangaroo Cup and the process of making a better version:

It's truly impressive the impact this little lady has had on the public, and she is still in middle school. Her dad jokes about Lily not being the typical kid who asks for a pony, but instead for a factory that would build Kangaroo Cups. However, creativeness seems to run in the family -- Lily’s dad is also an inventor, having created the SkipDr, a digital innovation that repairs CDs and DVDs.

 

Lily has shown us that dreams need to be followed as they bring successful stories. Lily, may your future be bright!
