Waterscope: The River through a Red Cup My seven year old daughter arrived home from a field trip with a plastic-wrapped red cup that she called a waterscope. I was not prepared to be impressed.

I love the idea that the ubiquitous red party cup, icon of disposable culture, can become a portal to something quite different.
