Defying gravity

Straws are terrifically useful for people who have difficulty holding or tilting a mug of liquid…unless that liquid happens to be hot.

It uses surface tension and strategically designed grooves to keep a steady supply of hot caffeinated goodness moving ever mouth-ward. Can we get a version specifically designed for hands-free use, please?
