Reinventing the cup, yet again: Mademoicell

Found this entry at Jezebel:

http://jezebel.com/5541874/28-days-special-tampon-can-save-humanity

Quote: "Chelsea Briganti, a senior at Parsons The New School for Design has created "Mademoicell," a device that collects menstrual blood for adult stem cells. "

The "conceptual product" design reminds me of that art project from last year. Not exactly practical... that long stem doesn't look comfortable. Another product that seems to have been created without researching the history of menstrual cups or acknowledging that there already are several brands on the market.

ETA: direct links to the articles Jezebel cites as sources:
