A local entrepreneur is working on a contraption that will make it easy to cut glass bottles, leaving behind a perfect drinking glass (or a lampshade-like figure, depending on which end you keep). Patrick Lehoux has created this eclectic collection of glasses using his invention, the Kinkajou.
“Named after the small South American mammal with big teeth the Kinkajou is a bottle cutter with a new twist,” Lehoux wrote on his website.
“The cutters currently available on the market are big and bulky and not very interesting to look at. My design was meant to be simple to operate, easy to store and more aesthetically pleasing; something you wouldn’t mind keeping in your kitchen.”
