In modern times, the technology behind bottles hasn’t improved all that much. The most recent innovation of popular significance that I can think of is the mountains that turn blue when your Coors Light is nice and cold, but that’s more of a gimmick than anything. Now, Daniel Perlman, a biophysicist at Brandeis University, has come up with a new idea that’s a true step forward (via Uproxx).

Check this out:

This new wine bottle design makes it a lot easier to achieve a clean pour, without having to worry about your Merlot going anywhere aside from your glass. This is especially important as it gets later in the evening and your hand-eye coordination perhaps isn’t what it was a few hours earlier. The design itself is very simple, and we imagine it’d be easy for wine bottlers to implement. It’s basically your standard bottle with one change: there’s a shallow groove added near the bottle opening. This prevents drops of liquid from “catching” the bottle’s neck and causing a torrent of wine to run down it. It’s so simple, and yet so effective, as the clip above shows.

After three years of studying how wine leaves a bottle, Perlman finally came up with the perfect solution to unnecessary spills. By making the groove two millimeters wide and one millimeter deep, it’s virtually impossible for a renegade drop of wine to make it past that gap. Now, let us waste no more wine, for Perlman has shown us the light.
