See y'all next time!
Sorry to see the frisbee life saver guy not make it. Thought his invention could have really used the money to improve it.
Hate to admit it but the paper bedding lady probably has a great idea. And with Mr. Know It All's knowledge about paper products they could probably come up with something better than diaper liners.
I came to post the same thought. A hole in a plate to hold the cup is all you need. Reinforce the hole with plastic so it would be easy to lift the cup in and out. Obviously this plate is for foods that are not runny or say, radishes or olives that could escape when taking a sip.
I think his idea of having the spiral bottom in the hole, that retracts when the cup is removed, is to eliminate the possiblity that you would lose some of your dinner when taking a sip.
Wendiness, not sure what you mean. Any body fluids quickly degrade and are environmentally friendly.
I am tired of the tears. Quitting ones job or selling the family jewels to develop a game is way out of kilter.
I could just picture two intellectual giants arguing over which was correct, and compromising by using both variations.
Who did THAT?? Rings, necklaces, brooches, I can see, but NOT THE FAMILY JEWELS!!selling the family jewels

For the plate, why not have a paper cup holder (like a CD-ROM/coffee cup holder in a car) that slides or flips out from the bottom of the plate. Glues on, easy to add to the assembly lines since you don't have to change the original plate design.
Or have a reusable plastic plate that fits under the paper plate with the cup holder.
