The Gululu water flask is special drinking bottle designed exclusively for kids to help them stay hydrated with an interactive and gamified design. The bottle encourages kids to keep drinking water using an interface designed as a game that can be played with multiple players. The idea behind the bottle is to provide kids with a reward for staying hydrated by turning the chore of drinking water into a fun and enjoyable routine.

The smart bottles are designed with an embedded battery pack that powers an interactive game about underwater creatures. The animals stay alive and fed the more the user drinks the water, and children can pair their bottles so their virtual creatures can interact. The Gululu also includes a specially designed set of sensors that monitor how much liquid is being consumed and if the water is actually being drunk -- as oppose to dumped.
