These self-heating baby bottles are called 'Qi,' a name that is actually pronounced "chi." The bottles were designed by the creative team at HJC and each product is disposable and convenient for on-the-go parents.

The self-heating baby bottles are made using a prepared formula with an integrated heating system. The design uses various compartments within the bottle to hygienically preserve the formula inside. The formula is accessed and heated using a simple twisting knob on the base of the bottle. When the knob is twisted, the formula is released and heat is dispersed throughout the bottle until it reaches a satisfactory temperature.

The ultimate goal for these bottles is to cater to busy parents who need to maintain a feeding schedule during their already hectic lives. The design team was able to recreate a synthetic breast device that carries preserved formula, which has s shelf life of 12 months.
