Ooho, simpler and simple impossible, so simple that even people could do it at home. Ooho is a small transparent membrane filled with water, a large drop of edible and biodegradable water. Its production expense is only 2 cents. Ooho arises from the need to find an alternative to the millions of plastic bottles that are used and discarded every day for water consumption, and important note, the vast majority is not recycled and ends up damaging the environment.

Rodrigo García González, Pierre Paslier and Guillaume Couche created Ooho, now they want to introduce it to the market through Skipping Rocks Lab.

Ooho is a vessel that contains water in a double membrane, using a technique to shape liquids in spheres called “spherification.” A technique that encapsulates foods with gelatin textures, so that they have a consistency similar to fish eggs.

Ooho is made of algae and calcium chloride, at a very low cost. To drink the water you just have to break the sphere and sip the water inside. But don’t worry, it’s edible.

The design won the second annual Lexus Design Award 2014.

It could be the solution to the very serious problem of water bottled in plastic. Remember that water packaging uses more fossil fuels. Most water bottles are manufactured with polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a plastic derived from petroleum. 86% of used plastic water bottles in the US They become trash or fill. The incineration of used bottles generates toxic by-products such as chlorinated gas. Buried bottles can take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade. 90% of the cost of bottled water is per bottle.

Hence the great revolution that this invention would entail on our planet, a positive impact on our society that is very difficult to quantify but of millionaire proportions.
