Ooho, the Edible Water
With the worry on the planet about the ever increasing number of plastic water bottles, three students in London have designed the ‘edible’ water bottle. It’s called ‘Ooho’ and it’s easy and cheap to make, strong, biodegradable and you can eat it.
The technology goes back to 1946 called ‘spherification’, it shapes liquids into spheres. ‘Ooho’ is being made to reduce cost as well as eliminate plastic bottles; it can be made for just 2 cents a unit. The challenges are: how to keep the package clean before you drink or eat it, you’re going to get some water on your face, clothes and table when drinking it and it is an acquired taste when eating it.
Two good things about ‘Ooho is anyone can make it at home and it will reduce the amount of plastic water bottles on Earth.
