Will this be the end of plastic bottles? Edible water 'balloon' that looks like a breast implant will go on sale within a year

Inventors are now fundraising to make enough to bring the bottles to customers 

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 engineers said their 'mission is to make packaging waste disappear'. 

'Ooho! is a sustainable packaging alternative to plastic bottles and cups, made from a seaweed extract,' they said on their crowdfunding page.

'It is entirely biodegradable and so natural you can actually eat it.

'Ooho sachets are flexible packets of water, drunk by tearing a hole and pouring into your mouth, or consumed whole.

'Our packaging is cheaper than plastic and can encapsulate any beverage including water, soft drinks, spirits, and even cosmetics.'

The Ooho sphere has a double gelatinous membrane.

It is made using a mixture of sodium alginate, taken from brown algae, and calcium chloride.
