21 innovations

Alcohol powder

Dutch students have developed powdered alcohol which they say can be sold legally to minors.

The latest innovation in inebriation, called Booz2Go, is available in 20-gramme packets that cost 1-1.5 euros ($1.35-$2).

Top it up with water and you have a bubbly, lime-colored and -flavored drink with just 3 percent alcohol content.

"We are aiming for the youth market. They are really more into itbecause you can compare it with Bacardi-mixed drinks," 20-year-old Harmvan Elderen told Reuters.
