Temperature makes a huge difference to peoples' enjoyment of what they consume. Water is no exception to this and it's kept deliciously chilled in this sports BOTL by Benjamin Helle.
Inspired by the way that mammals cool themselves down, the designer gave his water bottle a skin. A rough canvas jacket covers the entirety of the flask below the cap with the gaps in the woven material to facilitate its ingenious low-technology.
If you begin with cold H2O when you start your bike ride then condensation will form on the outside of the plastic. The cloth absorbs this moisture so that it doesn't drip off and it instead becomes the cooling agent. BOTL by Benjamin Helle chills the liquid inside with the help of the fresh breeze that meets the moisture to cool the canteen.
BOTL Uses the Principle of Sweating to Keep Contents Cool
1. Sweating Technology - Adopting the principle of sweating to cool and preserve the quality of contents can be applied in various food and beverage storage products.
2. Low-tech Cooling Systems - Creating simple and innovative cooling systems such as the use of rough canvas jackets can offer disruptive innovation opportunities to improve traditional cooling methods.
3. Temperature-specific Consumption - Developing products that cater to temperature-sensitive consumers and enhancing their experience through temperature retention can offer potential market disruption in the industry.
1. Beverage and Water Bottle Manufacturing - Using inventive materials and design techniques can improve the quality of beverage containers and offer disruptive products in the market.
2. Sporting Goods - Incorporating advanced cooling technologies in sports equipment and clothing can provide a unique selling point and disruptive innovation opportunities.
3. Food Storage Industry - Applying sweating technology and low-tech cooling systems to food storage containers can improve the quality and freshness of food products, offering potential market disruption in the sector.
