Edible water balloon that looks like a breast implant will go on sale within a year

[UK] An edible water bottle that wobbles like a breast implant will go on sale within a year.

The Ooho! is a squidgy globe filled with water that could change the way we stay hydrated forever.

The bubble-like spheres were first invented by a trio of engineers in 2014 but the inventors are now fundraising to get their edible bottles on the market.

The spheres are created using gelification – a technique used in cooking to turn liquids into gel by adding an edible gelling agent.

The engineers are now raising around $500,000 (£400,000) so that they can bring their product to market.

Each globule contains nine ounces (250ml) of water.

The spheres cost approximately 2 cents (less than a penny) a unit to make. There is currently no retail price.

The bubble-like spheres were first invented by a trio of engineers in 2014 but the inventors are now fundraising to get their edible bottles on the market.

The team hope to start selling their squishy spheres at music festivals and marathons within 12 months.

‘Liquid forms drops because the liquid exhibits surface tension,’ said Ooho!’s creators Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez, Pierre Paslier and Guillaume Couche.

‘Bounded completely or almost completely by free surfaces.’
‘Ooho replicates this behaviour, encircling the water in an edible membrane of algae.’
