drip-free-wine-bottle

Daniel Perlman—Brandeis University biophysicist, wine-enthusiast and inventor—has created what might be one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs of our time: The Drip-Free Wine Bottle. There are products out there designed to prevent those pesky drips from ending up on the table, your hands or anywhere other than the glass they’re supposed to be in, but Perlman worked on this breakthrough because he “didn’t want there to be the additional cost or inconvenience of buying an accessory.” Turns out, preventing those drips is possible with a 2mm groove near the top of the bottle, which was made with a diamond-studded tool and some help from engineer Greg Widberg. No word yet on whether any winemakers or bottle manufacturers will actually put Perlman’s groove into use, but we can’t imagine a world where someone wouldn’t want to be able to sell drip-free wine. Perlman has over 100 patents to his name, but this might be our favorite invention of his yet.
