Fourteen promising drinks inventions unveiled in 2018

From products inspired by the onset of commercial space travel to injectable biochips that monitor the body’s alcohol levels – we round up some promising, clever and outlandish drinks inventions that have launched this year.

This year has already seen a plethora of drinks companies, scientists, engineers and designers launch products into the market.

Some have been developed where there is clear need, with the inventor of a pill which claims to reduce hangovers admitting that the product would go down well with college students.

Others have been created with future markets in mind. The advent of commercial space travel, in particular, presents many opportunities for the drinks industry in the luxury sector.

And for those who are after something slightly more quirky, this year has also witnessed the launch of a wine-inspired paint shade, straws made from bike parts and animated beer cans.

Scroll through to view the round-up of inventions and comment below with any that we may have missed.
