Designer Creates a Water Bottle That You Can Eat 171

Diggester (2492316) writes "Rodrigo García González has been working on the Ooho water bottle for the past few years. The bottle is made out of edible materials, looks like a jellyfish, and has the potential to put an end to the bottled water industry. Inspired by the juice-filled pearls added to bubble tea and the mad-cuisine creations of chef Ferran Adriá, who uses a technique known as sheperification (encasing liquid into edible membranes), García is on his way to revolutionizing the bottled water industry."

    Ok, the "bottle" can be eaten...but is the "bottle" placed in a sealed box or other container? Or, before use, do you have to sterilize it before use? Plus, not that it is healthy to reuse a water bottle, I see a lot of them being refilled around colleges, businesses, parks etc...

    Because apparently everyone thinks the only useful feature of a bottle is "lets you hold liquids in your hand."

    The whole "resealing" thing is kind of useful, if you can't or don't want to finish your water in one sip.

    There's also the thing where you can handle them with dirty hands and the inside stays sanitary.

    But as long as you don't care about any of the pertinent features of bottles, sure, this is a "bottle."
