Feel thirsty?? Finished your bottle?k then, eat it!
Can't believe? yes...Now you can eat water with the bottle which is developed in UK. A design student developed this edible 'bottle' of water that could rid the world of excess plastic waste.

Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez along with fellow Imperial College London students has been working on the Ooho water bottle for the past few years.

It looks like a jellyfish and made out of edible materials. The students were inspired by the juice-filled pearls added to bubble tea and the creations of legendary Spanish chef Ferran Adria, who uses a technique of encasing liquid into edible membranes known as sheperification.

The experiment of Gonzalez and his team was as follows :

-First they took a frozen ball of water and dipped it into a calcium chloride solution, which formed a gelatinous layer.
-Then the ball was soaked in another solution made from brown algae extract, which encapsulated the ice in a second squishy membrane to reinforce the structure.
-Keep the water in the algae solution for a long period, which allows the mold to become thicker and stronger.

Gonzalez said, "The main point in manipulating the water as solid ice during the encapsulation is to make it possible to get bigger spheres and allow the calcium and algae to stay exclusively in the membrane."

However, the edible bottles doesn't hold large amounts of water and can't be resealed. Ooho has been tested in some European cities, but the researchers need to perfect it.
