Realistically, this “innovation” will most likely be used to add a personalized message to the bottle to be given as a gift.
The practical implications of this are pretty far reaching though – a bottle that warns you to only have one or two if you’re driving would be just the beginning. How about junk food that has flashing warnings about cholesterol and blood pressure? This invention could take the fun out of almost anything..
