Memobottle fits in an H2O supply alongside your sleek, essential devices
Have you ever tried to squeeze a decent sized water bottle into your slim computer or messenger bag? What you get, at best, is an unsightly zip-bulging bump in your bag, at worst it just won’t fit alongside your laptop or hybrid or tablet and supporting chargers, power supplies and peripherals. Kickstarter project memobottle recognises this tubular shaped bottle shortcoming and aims to supply slim water bottles in common paper sizes which slot neatly among your technological slabs.
Memobottle sums up its new product as follows: “Resembling the shape of a piece of paper, the memobottle is a slimline, premium designed reusable water bottle which suitably slides into your favourite carry bag alongside your computer, books and valuables. The memobottle brings leak-proof hydration to a new level of style and efficiency.”
The memobottle will be initially available in three standard paper sizes; A5 148 x 210mm, A4 210 x 297mm and American Letter 216 x 279mm. Even if you are already familiar with the word of paper sizes you probably don’t know how much water these square bottles will hold. Well those standard paper sized bottles will supply you with 750ml, 1.25L and 1.25L of liquid refreshment respectively. Unfortunately we aren’t told the bottle thicknesses but I’d estimate they are about 25mm thick. Importantly, for a bottle that is designed to nestle up to your $100 ultrabook and so on, these bottles are said to be “leak proof”. It would be impressive if buyers got some financial guarantee backing that claim up.
The team behind the project don’t just boast of the utility value of these large rectangular bottles but also brag of it being more environmentally friendly than just buying and disposing of water bottles. They seek to bang the green drum to help sell their plastic product… OK.
Looking at health matters, these memobottles are both BPA free and dishwasher safe. However some would still recommend that you refresh the water contained in these as often as you can and don’t let it swill around in there for weeks.
The memobottle Kickstarter project still has a very long 43 days to go yet has already busted through its $15,000 goal, achieving over $17,000 in backing at the time of writing.
