Giggle Cup

Accomplished with sensors and speakers

As you pour liquid into the cup, it starts giggling. The more you pour, the louder and higher the giggling gets. When you get near the brim, it shouts, "NO MORE PLEASE! I CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE!" and repeats that until you drink some liquid so it falls beneath the safety level.

Optional is that it giggles the entire time that there is liquid in the cup. As you drink more, it giggles less.

Of course, then you might laugh and milk would come out of your nose.

Entirely dishwasher safe, though it might giggle the entire time when being washed.

       I fail to see the attraction of the product, except for its novetly, but that's enough to sell a lot of things. +

       This is fun. Does it giggle more hysterically when filled with alcohol?

       This would make an even better pint glass. +

       You could put a small nozzle at the bottom so sometimes it could pee itself. +

       A bit of brandy in it and it might just hiccup...

       major attraction of product is that, laughter being contagious, you will laugh too.

       I'd be afraid of it splitting its sides.   

       This drink tastes funny...

       Could I get a model that moans with pleasure and makes a screaming orgasm when you fill it all the way up? (deep symbolism there, huh?)

       or that it's getting wetter...

       so you don't ever ever get bored of hearing the same giggle again and again, try synthethising sounds based on various liquid parameters (heat, throttle, like [rayfordsteele] said... alcohol sensors..). I'd like every giggle to be unique. nice one
