The spherical bottle is made up of gelatinous, edible membranes, and experts say it could one day make disposable plastic drinks containers obsolete

A design that could see the end of plastic water bottles has been hailed as one of five ideas which could change the world.

The Ooho! bottle’s composition has been likened to that of a jellyfish or a breast implant.

Due to it being biodegradable, even if you didn’t want to eat the bottle, throwing it away still wouldn’t have a negative effect on the environment.

Oohoo

Ooho! was designed by Royal College of Art and the Imperial College of London postgraduate Rodrigo Garcia Gonzalez.

The Global Design Forum said the product could “make the ubiquitous and unsustainable plastic water bottle obsolete.”

Alongside Ooho! on the Global Forum Design’s ‘Five ideas that could change the world’ shortlist, was a tile that produces energy from the footsteps of people walking across it and a mobile phone app which allows users to perform their eye tests on themselves.
