Waterbury, CT (PRWEB) October 26, 2006 –-
The Yankee Invention Exposition is a three-day event where inventors can showcase their products to manufacturers, investors, venture capitalists, distributors, licensing firms, wholesalers/retailers and marketers. Also exhibiting are suppliers of services to inventors including prototypers, marketing experts, telemarketing companies, patent attorneys, fulfillment companies and industrial designers.
During the exposition, a panel of experienced judges evaluates the inventions and awards prizes for the following categories: Best of Show, Best Booth Display, Best in Each Category, Greatest Distance Traveled and the Connecticut Inventor Award.
On Saturday October 21, the panel of judges awarded Stephen Kazyaka, an inventor from Sherman, CT, the prestigious award "Connecticut Inventor 2006."
This award, recently renamed the "Tony Bergin Award" in memory of Mr. Bergin's dedication to innovativeness and local Industry in Connecticut, was presented to Kazyaka for his design of the KAZ e KUP ™cup holder.
The KAZ e KUP ™ is a portable, dishwasher safe cup holder that includes a self contained reservoir to catch and store spills and condensation. As a result, the KAZ e KUP ™ eliminates the mess that often occurs in and around typical cup holders. The invention is ideal for use in cars, trucks, boats, baby strollers, exercise equipment, golf carts and anywhere else people may find or need a cup holder.

"When spills occur or condensation begins to form on drinks, it can make a real mess. The KAZ e KUP ™ fits into existing cup holders and stops this problem. The fluids are caught in its self-containing reservoir where they can be removed and washed easily at a later time," explained Kazyaka.
The KAZ e KUP ™ is made of plastic, and envelopes the cup, bottle or can inside of it. The reservoir is located in the bottom, and added support fins around the top help to stabilize the beverage to reduce spills in the first place. The built-in funnel system then allows any spilled liquids that may still occur to bypass the cup or other held container and come to rest in the reservoir below.
