There are many people in this world who love Ketchup, but for those of us who do love it (myself included) there is one major drawback. That time when you forget to shake the bottle first, you tip the bottle upside down and all of a sudden you have watery, messy liquid soaking your fries and still have no sauce on them, yuck!

Two teenage inventors for the Liberty North High School in Missouri have come up with a solution to this truly first world problem, they’ve customised the cap. The new cap is mushroom-shaped and was made using a 3D printer, insert the cap into the bottle and it prevents the fluid built up by trapping the water at the bottom of the bottle.

It’s great to see little ideas like this come to life thanks to 3D printing, especially within schools and other places of education. The boys aren’t planning to patent or market the invention right now and well… that makes them idiots, because it’s little innovations like this that big companies love to snap up.
