Oh, how I would love a coffee mug like this.
This is one of those "random bursts of inspiration" kind of deals, out of the blue I just had this crazy idea and had to design it.
Japanese toy developers are always coming up with unique and interesting ways to incorporate Mario characters into everyday life - cushions, blankets, lamps, chairs, the list goes on. I thought of how some people like to chug a drink and then slam their mug down on the bench, and the solution was painfully obvious. Everybody loves Thwomps! Why not drink out of one?
The underside has a sensor device that detects when you set the mug down, and plays a classic thwompy sound to dignify it (click the speaker on the magnified section for a sample - the entire reason I made this swf instead of jpg).
As you can see, it has a small battery compartment to hold some of those hearing-aid sized batteries, and you can easily just switch off the sound if you don't want it to do that.
Just don't "thwomp" your mug until you've finished your drink!

What do you people think? Would it sell? Would YOU buy one? Maybe I could try to find a job making official merchandise...

Modeled in Maya, took about 7 hours amidst distractions.

You know I'd buy that :rofl:
I want one. ^^ Is it sort of like, when you switch it on, and you put it on a table, a desk, or something, it makes that funny "NGGG!" noise,or sumfin like that?

Indeed it is. You can even click on the speaker in the picture to hear the sound it will make!

that's possibly the best cup design ever, i would take a sip every second just to be able to put it back down and hear that classic "hngrrrr!" lol XD, nice work

That is such a great idea! I think carrying one of those around in the morning would scare people away from bothering you. I'm not even a coffee drinker but I would buy one as long as it was less than $20.
