Where do you put your coffee?

I'm thinking drone supported coffee-table.

Two solutions come to mind immediately:

1. Coffee in a paper glass (like one you get at Starbucks) with cover and only half filled, so it never spills.

2. A table with gyro stabilizers.

Insta-coffee. Cup contains beans in sealed bottom compartment, water in sealed middle compartment. When you go to drink, a single sip of fresh coffee is instantly brewed. You drink it, and there is nothing to spill.

Or... just live in a normal house and drink from a mug.

The reference of course is not relevant.

So it is "art architecture." There need be no other reason that that. So the better question is, why not? Maybe it inspires someone else to come up with something interesting or a more practical application. Or maybe someone just finds it a fun place to be.

It means that this house would be the most optimum location to start jumping and fooling around every time someone is peeing or taking a dump.
