Poka Yoke for Asset maintenance

Was at the library, and looking at the things you see everyday, you can sometimes learn interesting things..

What comes to my mind today when I look at those conical cups for drinking water in the library is that this is an interesting poka yoke for asset maintenance. Maybe there have been instances previously where students had glasses of water spill on the computers and the books etc. A simple change in the shape of the glass would never let this happen. Its foolproof!

Nothing but an example of looking at past experiences and finding innovative ways to counter the problem from the root. They could have thought of making students aware by putting up posters about the menace, but could it have been so effective..?
