The 45-Degree Neck

What will happen if we shift the mouth of the bottle from the top to a 45-degree angle? You may not be able to fill it to the brim, and drinking from it may be a bit weird, but filling the bottle from a water cooler or fountain will surely become easy. This simple placement difference can do a heck lot for the packaging design and I think it’s radical and awesome.

    What if the bottles were made normally right, but take out the mouth and replace it with a slit then make a separate mouth piece you could put it…( this can be manufactured or a reusable cap/lid)
    itd be able to be a normal bottle for stacking and whatever but you could pivet the mouth to a 45 degree angle for drinking and filling and then move it back or not…up to the consumer really…but i like this idea…even tho it isnt really new and neither is my idea…ive heard and talked about these ideas before but still havent really seen it in stores.

    I like the whole phillips screwdriver thinking.
    But then again. Why 45degrees. It looses it spurpose.The feeling of tilting back and have a good zip of water ,contra looking like we drink water like hamsters.The reason on this one is simple. Its un natural !

    WOW what a great idea. maybe even put it on the bottom of the bottle?

    Apart from deciding a theme, there is one more important factor which requires your care and caution that is the rate factor because no matter, how much wedding is important, post wedding celebration also matters and so money must be remained in pocket to enjoy such.

    Are you trying to make it MORE inconvenient, so people don’t use plastic bottles? I admit I didn’t read every word, but “improve the inconvenience” just stops me in my tracks.

    Hi, have you ever considered getting on Quirky? Check it out, it may help you get from concept to reality. If you do not want to give it a shot, let me know, I would like your permission to submit this idea.

    Great innovation – keep it up, and don’t lose heart with all the negative comments from people because that’s human nature and its do easy to point out problems and sound so clever when in reality they are more like unimaginative.

    Designers have to keep pushing the boundaries and challenging engineering to think outside their known universe which is a constant battle.

    It’s only when there are aspirations that take us out of what we know can be done easily that the standard is ever raised in production and engineering because left to them alone we would probably just be migrating from horse to steam by now – held back by people who couldn’t get past the fact that steam is very hot and too dangerous to handle.

    There are a lot of people who have made comments here that really need to get out more – maybe attend a de Bono creative thinking workshop or similar and start to see a world of things that are possible, or to play “what if…” To generate ideas rather than because they dont have any friends seeking to make having friends gainst the law to make sure the other children are all brought down to the same degree of unhappiness!

    How about using more flexible material at the top and modeling the filler/pourer on the flexible and retractable head of a turtle?

  • Easy invented for drinking pretty nice thank you.

  • TY says:

    Why dont you make it not out of plastic, instead of changing the stupid angle of the spout, huh??

  • trieu dang says:

    Great idea! Different sizes? I would buy one. Check out Alline’s water bottles. Similar concept.

  • My eating habits have nnot been much different than usual.
    Only doing sit-ups and crunches aree also not responsible to reduce the belly fat
    especially in the spot. Focusing on loss will result in your body
    to turn against you’ll.

    good!

  • oce says:

    Love the !dea. Really cool.

  • Darinder says:

    Yes, 45 degree angle really make drinking water from bottle easy. I think all product manufactures related to bottles should change their tradition design.

  • matt says:

    Great ideas thanks for share that post . this post really help me and my friends,

    Thanks

  • Nigel says:

    This is such a good idea, why is this not the norm? With a bit of financing this could be a real hit and on shelves everywhere!

  • lowri says:

    Awesome invention! I want it, where can we get them?

  • Gaurav dubey says:

    Hey the bottle design is superb, well thought..
    Production n logistics can always be taken care of.It’s not as if you there is no technology available right now which can’t produce PET bottles.
    Remember it’s the thought which counts and she has done a brilliant job with it.

    Good going I liked it.
    Plz drop me a mail would like to get in touch.
    Regards,
    Gaurav

  • What a neat idea! I really want to buy one of these! Please someone create that!

    Great find!
