Container rethink Ooho team cooks up water holder

first_img © 2014 Phys.org The technique dates back to lab work in the 1940s. In more recent times. Spanish chef Ferràn Adria brought the technique to highly creative modern cuisine at his restaurant elBulli. The Ooho ingredients are water, calcium chloride and brown algae. The Ooho team applied the concept not to elegant caviar or pea soup renderings but to water. Their project involved their experimenting with different portions and dimension of their brown algae, calcium chloride and water ingredients and they developed a suitable double gelatinous membrane. An estimated cost to make this water ball is not exactly prohibitive—two cents a unit. The double membrane protects the inside hygienically, one of the designers said in Fast Company.A report on the team’s efforts in designboom, the digital architecture and design magazine, said the inspiration for their entry came from nature’s way of encapsulating liquid using membranes, as in the egg yolk. The Ooho team succeeded in creating their edible membrane as an alternative to the plastic water bottle. To achieve their double gelatinous membrane they used sodium alginate from the brown algae and calcium chloride in proportions that could generate gelification. While companies have the infrastructure to manufacture packaging, according to the report in designboom, the main idea of Ooho “is that everyone could make them at their kitchen, modifying and innovating the ‘recipe.’ From DIY to CIY (Cook It Yourself).” (Phys.org) —Think about it. A Sunday in the park. Trashbins overflow with plastic water bottles cast off by joggers, power walkers and their cheering supporters. They have gone home after a charitable athletic event to raise money for—you guessed it—the environment. Are we going nowhere very fast? A water container called the Ooho is a potential option; it is biodegradable and edible. The Ooho was created by three designers and has been named one of 12 winners of the Lexus Design Award 2014. This is an international design competition, where 1,157 submissions were received during the application period and from that group, 12 winners were selected after consideration by six judges. One may describe this entry as a water ball or more specifically as membrane packaging for liquids. Rodrigo García Gonzalez, Pierre Pasalier, and Guillaume Couche are the designers. After all, are plastic bottles the choice containers for water? The designers came up with a holder for water in the form of a double membrane. The process they used is known as “spherification,” a technique used in culinary circles for shaping liquids into sphheres resulting in artistic presentations of food that look like magical jewels.

The anthology consisting of 22 songs, dedicated to Kadambari Tagore, his sister in law, chronicles the romance between Radha and Krishna. Tagore seeks connection with divinity through appeal to nature and the emotional interplay of human drama. The poems primarily speak of the eternal love between Radha and Krishna, a love like no other, a bond that connected the two souls and brought them together for all eternity.

A Fashionable Inflatable Bike Helmet Collar Yes You Read That Right

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Register Now » November 21, 2013 3 min read One startup is using technology to reinvent a piece of cumbersome safety equipment — with a fashionable flair.Everyone knows that wearing a helmet is important while you’re riding a bicycle. After all, that precious brain inside your noggin is pretty essential. But bike helmets, while much more fashionable than they used to be, are still fairly cumbersome and awkward, especially if you spend a lot of time making sure your coif is perfectly coiffed and would like it to remain so.In 2005, Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin, then industrial design students at the University of Lund in Sweden, decided to tackle that issue in their master’s thesis. It was a response to a new law mandating helmet use for cyclists under age 15, and the subsequent debates over whether a similar mandate for adults should be implemented. The problem, the women proposed, was to create a helmet that adults would be happy to wear, whether they were required to do so or not.Their idea was to create an airbag “helmet” that is actually a collar worn around the neck, which inflates instantly during a crash. The device is called the Hövding.The team contacted a head trauma specialist, studied countless hours of bicycle crash data and staged their own controlled crashes to collect movement patterns. Test cyclists also gathered data about normal riding conditions — the sorts of starts, stops and events that happen during everyday cycling. They then used this data to develop an algorithm that can distinguish normal cycling from accidents. After all, it wouldn’t be helpful if your airbag helmet deployed when you bend down to pick up your keys, right?Made of an ultra-strong, rip-proof nylon fabric, the airbag looks like a hood when inflated, giving the wearer greater coverage than a traditional helmet, as well as softer, gentler shock absorption. Unlike an automobile airbag, which deflates again almost as soon as it deploys, the Hövding is designed to remain inflated for several seconds, allowing it to withstand several impacts during the same accident.Sounds kinda wacky, right? Check out this video:So is it safe? The short answer is yes. According to the company’s website, “Hövding is CE marked and has successfully undergone SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden’s extensive approval process. CE marking is required for a cycle helmet to be able to be sold in Europe, certifying that the helmet complies with the requirements laid down in the EU’s Personal Protective Equipment Directive.” That means it meets or exceeds every standard for safety related to bicycle helmets sold in Europe.Like a regular bicycle helmet, the Hövding can’t be reused after it’s deployed during an accident. But unlike a regular helmet, it might actually be able to help with future product safety developments. Inside the collar there is a black box that records 10 seconds of data on the cyclist’s movement patterns from an accident. In the event of an accident, the company requests that you send the Hövding back to them so that they can use this data in further research.Such a stylish and innovative device isn’t inexpensive. One collar plus a colorful shell will set you back about $535, but some insurance companies will subsidize the cost of protective gear such as the Hövding.Here’s to safe, fashionable cycling.What crazy apps and gadgets have you come across lately?
