Description:
[0001] When people go for movies or concerts etc. they buy a single cup of soft drink from which several people drink. This is unhealthy and unhygienic. I have invented a multi-section cup for soft drinks. Thus each person drinks from his own section of the single cup without polluting anyone else's drink.

BACKGROUND OF INVENTION

[0002] The problem of the current single space cups is that two (or more) people drinking from it is one (or more) too many people for healthy drinking. A multi-compartment cup gives each person his own cup.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF INVENTION

[0003] A multi-compartment cup is needed to make drinking of soft drinks healthy and hygienic at movies etc.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF INVENTION

[0004] I have invented a multi-compartment cup for soft drinks to be used by people at large gatherings like movies etc. It can have two, three, four, five or six compartments. Each compartment will have a different shaped straw to enable people to feel their own straw in the dark. Different section cups will have the same lid with six soft covered holes. Thus for a two section cup two straws will be punched in. The wall for each section will be made highest at the center and it tapers off to be just a little higher at the edge of the cup to make sure the drink from one section does not spill into any other section. The lid is also shaped to accommodate the gradual elevation at the center. Another version will have an even level partition wall that is slightly higher than the rim of the cup.
