inclined rim glass

less head tilt to finish your drink

This idea is inspired by the RhinoCans idea.

If you're drinking from a glass with vertical walls (i.e. not a martini glass) you have to tilt your head back a bit further to get the last gulp of liquid. Reason being, if you try to tilt the glass further up rather than tilting your head, the top rim of the glass presses against some part of your face (philtrum, nose or forehead) depending on the glass size.

So I propose a glass with a sloping rim.

       Would be both nausea inducing and messy when drunk. [+]

       I just saw glasses with inclined rims in a Pier 1 store. <googling> Nice idea, btw.   

       Pier 1 calls their range of glasses "Angled Rim" , which gets a few other hits, probably all the same manufacturer. Linky.

       [+] the more people drink the more inclined (no pun intended) to forget the angle and pour the drink on themselves.
