With waste being a huge issue, biodegradable products are a much-needed solution. Tomorrow Machine is creating 100% biodegradable food packaging (think agar, beeswax, sugar materials) and their awesome work has won design awards! This stuff will just waste away! One of their products is a self-expanding bowl (featured) that opens up when hot water is added.

Tomorrow Machine, neonaturalism at its finest. A swedish design studio fusing biology and technology to make intelligent products. 

Above: the Self-Opening package (watch the video here). This package opens itself when the temperature (in the oven) is just right and the food is ready to be served.

The studio studied shapes that are self-opening in nature in order to work with the mechano-active material which will change shape when exposed to high temperature.
