Self-balancing bottom-weighted drinking glasses
If you don't remember Weebles, see link.
Now, imagine a really big Weeble, about 8 inches (20.32cm) tall, with the top chopped off, and hollowed out in the middle to hold liquid.
Self-balancing, un-tippable. And fun to look at and play with.

||Weeble Wobbles wobble but they don't fall down. An excellent party gag and wonderful for children. Have a wobbly pastry.
||I remember Hardee's (the fast food burger joint) had a promo several years ago for an "unspillable cup". It was a flexible plastic/foil thingy that was about 6 inches horizontal diameter, 3 inches high, and had rounded edges. I wish I had kept one, that was the weirdest durn looking cup I done e're seen!!
||...so perhaps a flip-straw device inserted into the top of the head rather than chopping it off.
||Yeah, like those egg shaped salt shakers that always turn up on The Antiques Roadshow. these nay-sayers [DN], I love the idea. And I love weebles. Do they still make them?
||Whilst looking to see whether or not they still make weebles I found that there is a big difference between the UK and the US ones. It's disturbing. The American ones scare me and I can't quite work out why. They just seem wrong somehow.
||But if they wobbled, won't that spill at least part of your drink anyway?
See link for alternative method - I've got one of these decanters and it works a treat. am sure you could make a cup the same...
