It’s a squishy blob of water in gel. Called Ooho, these H2O orbs are servings of water encased in an algae-based gel…and totally edible.
The creators of Ooho are three London-based industrial design students who, influenced by molecular gastronomy (a method of cooking that merges scientific methods), set out to create a viable way to deal with the fact that over 80% of all water bottles aren’t recycled.
While there are still a lot of kinks to work out, such as how do you keep Ooho clean and sanitary before consumption, in due time, you may be popping a couple of Ooho’s when you find yourself thirsty.
