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.

    I have a patented drinks accessory design that I need to set before the eyes of people familiar with the drinks industry. I am a retired Forex trader and have no knowledge of the drinks industry apart from enjoying a pint or two of lager. A business amateur I admit, but as an ex- trader I do recognise a good thing when I see it . Our survey indicates a 80/85 approval rating by social drinkers for this innovation. There are millions of people globally ready to use the product of this design, and my challenge is finding a way of getting it to them. Hit the 3 lines top left and take a look at the “brochure” on the website…all will be revealed.

    I was worried about the marine wildlife when I saw the plastic rings. I really wanted to be a part of saving Marine wildlife. So I decided to Buy a Photodegradable Six pack rings applicator and I got it with the help of my friend. With the help of this machine I’m able to reduce the harmful plastic usage.
