Illustrator Tomoko Shintani apparently has fun making drawings while she is at Starbucks. Her sketches have a small anamorphic element that is placed on the Styrofoam cups.

1) Nothing is withheld from us which we have conceived to do.
2) Do things that have never been done.
-The guy who invented the computer
The first meaning: if you’ve conceived something in your mind, decide to do it, and are willing to put in the work – nothing can stop you.
The second meaning: is fairly self-explanatory but carries the extra weight of it coming from the guy who invented the very thing that’s letting me type these words out on the internet.

The gist of Hot Straw is this: you cannot drink a straw with a hot drink— why? Because it melts in the liquid from something in the straw called Plasticizers.
Dawn Miracle (it’s her real name, trust me, I asked), Founder and CEO of Hot Straw, first came up with the idea for Hot Straw when working with Parkinson’s patients as a Clinical Researcher, because they DEFINITELY cannot drink hot liquids.
Basically she wanted to help them enjoy hot drinks without spilling or worrying about standard straws melting in the heat, she created a straw that eliminated Plasticizers.
In short: Hot Straw is the first straw designed specifically for use in hot liquids. The key difference is in its ability to withstand the temperature of a hot beverage and not allow plastic to melt into the drink. PLUS, (get this) it’s also BPA free, recyclable, and dishwasher safe.
Another cool about this product goes to the design of Hot Straw. Hot Straw has an oval shape that matches the opening in a to-go coffee lid, meaning the straw doubles as a spill stopper that you can still sip from.
“As a Clinical Researcher, it killed me to know my Parkinson’s patients couldn’t enjoy the coffee they have had their entire life. It’s my job to make their lives more comfortable and they wanted a hot drink, so I found a way to make it happen.” -Dawn Miracle
It was only after she created the straw for her patients that Dawn realized the interest from friends outside her research (this is where I come in).
THRILLED to say that as of last Tuesday Hot Straw has launched at Solsticio Café in Fremont (WA), the first café to sell Hot Straws.
Since Hot Straw was originally created to help Parkinson’s patients, 5% of all proceeds will go to Parkinson’s research!!!
