Saving Soda Twister

This little object right here is called the “Legcap.” It’s designed by a really quick-thinkin fellow by the name of Jaeseok Han. It’s made for your bottles of water, bottles of soda pop, bottles of whatever you’ve got in a bottle. Because bottles of liquid, after opening, are often stored head-up, they lose their luster. Soda becomes flat because of the imperfect seal of the twist cap. What does the Legcap do? It flips the bottle on it’s head, sealing with the liquid itself the freshness. Sittin on it’s head, the bottle keeps its cargo safe!

The bottle then, sitting there all weird looking, is appreciated by all who glance upon it. The liquid inside, say soda, stays carbonated. Carbonic acid is kept within the container. The container is then, with this new top, much easier to open and close, making it accessible to everyone.

NOTE: This might not work, as the reason soda goes flat actually has to do with pressure that’s lost after the first opening of the bottle. Anyone care to elaborate? Hint: vapor pressure.

  • Cute and useful gadget. How much does it cost?

      Great for the elderly and the disabled. Even the blind might find this an aid to something we all take for granted. Not necessarily for the upside down freshness but purely for the tactile cap.

    Maybe in orbit.
    Am I the only one who thinks that the main reason caps go on top of bottles is so that “imperfects seals” won’t lead to beverage leaks?

  • Dyyami says:

    Seems to me that a regular bottle does not stand on his ‘head’ is because it fill fall, not leak since the caps close pretty well. However, the design could be optimized by limiting the size of the stand, so that it is not wider as the original bottle and thus still fits in the door of my fridge.

    Could be useful to people that do not finish their soda bottles soon enough.. (Good solution to a small problem)

    Awesome, really like it.

  • Gunnar Tveiten says:

    That’s actually -not- the reason soda goes flat. Good try though !

  • parinaz says:

    is it realy needed?! i don’t think so!

  • Hunter says:

    soda caps hold up to 150 psi. this is ridiculous!

  • Margot says:

    would be a good idea if it worked – example of need to investigate the science before coming up with a product

  • Vikilife says:

    I like his shape

  • Roo 3k says:

    need to make one for 2 liter bottles, they are more commonly going flat

  • Feniks says:

    I saw a better solution. Original stopper remains. It is placed universal trident opener. It can also store your bottle upsidedown. This one one this site sims litle unstable for fridges. But looks good.

  • Todd says:

    For drink that comes in glass bottles I use the Vacu-Vin system to remove the air which keeps the drink fresh. This allows me to buy the larger sized bottles when available and it also works great on the bomber sized beer bottles.

    It won’t work on the plastic bottles. But I really try not to buy food items that come in plastic. No, it’s not so easy these days.

  • jose says:

    that doesn’t solve anything; useless idea.

  • Alaor says:

    Soda goes flat naturally when the bottle is open, but the plastic flexibility allow expanding while closed also, losing gas even closed, until the pressure stabilizes.
