Incorporating a cup holder in the interior decor of a car has been the most innovative idea from the time when sliced bread was discovered. Nevertheless, using it only for the purpose of holding your coffee mug is close minded conception. With a lot more things to store in it, a cup holder provides you the option of creating a home away from home or even a mobile office!
Coffee mugs and beverages are the usual choice. We are grateful to the automotive industry for including a cup holder in the internal design of our four wheelers. Coffee cups, water bottles, and even most of the popular beverages and energy drinks can accompany you on your morning trip to the office or when you are picking up the kids from school. Since mobile phones and PDA’s have become more ordinary, it has become a necessity to fix these devices in a proper place and that is where your coffee cup holder can come handy. With its position being within reach, it makes taking that call all the more easier. (I would like to make a note that several states are passing laws and regulations on “hands free” and though I agree cell phone usage while driving is dangerous, the cup holder is still a sensible place for your electronic devices.) In addition to the PDA’s and cell phones, there are a number of devices like pagers and remote controls that need to be placed in a proper position so that you can reach out for them without any hassle. For such cases, a standard cup holder with multiple drink holders comes in handy.
A college student might find a use for a cup holder for throwing his/her change. In fact, many of us adults also do the same. While driving through a fast food counter, you generally prefer keeping change for your burger or soda to save time and for that, there is not a better place than a cup holder to store your dimes and pennies. There is one last topic to be discussed and this happens to be the most creative one. A number of articles are available which describe a laptop tray, in your car, that can be extended from the cup holder. Usually made of PVC pipe, duct pipe and glue, the laptop tray is a very creative invention that can make your morning travel more exciting.
