This would consist of a small vinyl pouch which is inflated using a resealable nipple. You want a drink of coffee, just whip this out of your pocket/ purse, inflate it and fill it to the brim with your favorite hot or cold beverage. The air that fills it insulates it too. Or, fill it with water (instead of air), freeze it, and the frozen inflatable cup will keep your iced tea cold for a long time. When you are done, give it a rinse, deflate it and return it to your pocket.

       I would definitely buy one of these. I always feel bad about wasting Yet Another Paper Cup every time I get a soda, but on the other hand I always forget to bring along a plastic cup of my own. Being able to keep a cup in my wallet would be just the thing I need.

       Yep, this is a nice idea. +

       Or open the nipple, put the cup in your back pocket, sit down and . . . whoopee! . . . complete with a brown stain on your pants.

       phazed has something here. Not sure what. Hope it's not contagious. Somewhat baked by the collapsible cup, which would be much more sanitary, more stable when you need to set it down, and longer lasting (vinyl would dry out and crack. And let's not forget that dellicious vinyl taste! Yum)   

       Jeremi, just don't keep it in your wallet next to that other convenient latex item, nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Think how it would break the mood if you were to whip out the old inflatable cup just as she says yes.....   

       FarmerJohn - not your own pants! You young kids just don't know how to have fun!

       A small sand-filled base would help keep it upright and less likely to be blown around outside.
