I have chronic allergies and live in smoggy Dallas. This means that, for roughly 11 months out of the year, I live with a low-level chronic sinus infection. That's why, for most of the year, my nose is very stopped up. This isn't much of a problem during the day, but it causes me to breathe through my mouth while I sleep. That dries my mouth out and leads to sore throats, which is why I always sleep with water beside my bed.

In the last year alone I've knocked my cup o' water over several times, once soaking my smartphone (I use it as an alarm) and many times soaking me and my bedsheets. There's nothing quite as annoying and uncomfortable as being covered in stale water at 3:00 A.M. That's why I shouted to the heavens and praised the gods above the instant I learned about Litecup (via Gizmodo).

The Litecup is a high-tech (and possibly magical) drinking vessel designed for bedside use. It glows dimly in the dark to make it easier to find, and the top automatically seals when your lips leave the rim. That stops water from seeping out and splashing you when you drink while lying down. The price for this wonder of technology? £5.99, with no word yet on U.S. ability.

Normally I do my best to stay unbiased, but I'm afraid I can't in good conscience do that here. UK readers: please buy this product. Buy ten of them each. Keep this company alive until they get big enough to start shipping their products over to the U.S. I need this.
