Here is the problem with the mug holder. A few years back they were common in magazines like jc whitney and Deinnis Kirk catalogues. But, you guessed, it the manufacturer was sued by someone who had scolded themselves while driving on a hyway drinking hot cofee or some other liquid. Actually 2 different people sued the company but the other person lost his case as the mug holder he was using was a standard insulated model but the guy using the electrically heated model won a huge judgement against the company. The court ruled that since that model of cup holder actually produced heat to keep the beverage warm versus simply retaing the heat by insulating it that It had infact generated the scolding liquid and was liable for dammages. It is a shame that a few sue happy people keep Ideas like thais from getting off the ground.
