Who would have thought the design of a water bottle could be drastically improved? Well if you’ve ever tried to fill one in a shallow sink or drinking fountain you’ll appreciate the clever design of the Binibottle. In addition to the twist cap on top, it also includes a sunken twist cap on the side allowing the bottle to be filled in a horizontal position. That means there’s no more trying to awkwardly angle the bottle to get it to fit under the faucet of a small sink.
And believe it or not this simple but extremely helpful innovation was created by 15 year old Anna Axelsson. She designed the bottle for the Finnupp inventor’s contest and ended up winning the gold medal. The bottle can apparently be found in Swedish sporting good stores for around $5 and it’s safe to assume Anna won’t have any trouble paying for college when the time comes.
