H2O-Cooling Canteens

The Cool Runnings Water Bottle Promises Chilled Liquid on a Hot Day

— June 14, 2012 — Unique
You can usually only expect your beverage to be as chilled as the air around it or the ice cubes within but the Cool Runnings Water Bottle changes that. This innovative electronic flask uses a spinning turbine core to change the temperature of the fluid inside of it.

Jaehwa Lee's invention consists of a generic clear container with a narrow threaded neck, capped with a futuristic protruding lid that extends into a cooling pin that sits within the drink. "Twister-like grooves" on this spike stir up the H2O with better efficiency, and using a convection current, the flask decreases the degree of the contents when the user simply shakes it.

The Cool Runnings Water Bottle is designed to be used when no cold faucets are available. It's equipped with an on and off switch to conserve power, which it receives by charging via USB.
Trend Themes
1. Spinning Turbine Core - Opportunity for disruption: Develop a spinning turbine core technology that can be applied to various products for temperature control and regulation.
2. Convection Current - Opportunity for disruption: Create products that utilize convection current to alter the temperature of fluids or substances more efficiently.
3. USB Charging - Opportunity for disruption: Explore ways to incorporate USB charging into a wide range of products for portable power supply.
Industry Implications
1. Flask Manufacturing - Opportunity for disruption: Innovate the design and functionality of flasks to include temperature control features like spinning turbine cores.
2. Outdoor Gear - Opportunity for disruption: Integrate cooling technologies into outdoor gear products like water bottles to provide enhanced comfort and performance.
3. Portable Power Supply - Opportunity for disruption: Develop USB charging capabilities for a variety of products to enable convenient and portable power solutions.
