Created by London-based industrial design students Rodrigo García González, Pierre Paslier, and Guillaume Couche, the Ooho is a blob-like water container made out of an edible algae membrane.
The design is inspired by how liquid drops form and how egg yolks work. The container is created using a culinary technique called “spherification” and the water is held inside by a double gelatinous membrane. The gel around the water is created from brown algae and calcium chloride.
The northern white rhinoceros has been pushed to the tragic edge of survival by habitat destruction and poaching. With only four left on earth, their story is urgent — and their time could be running out. But The Ark, a virtual reality documentary, wants to make it possible to be in the presence of these endangered animals, even in the event of their extinction. Making the documentary is an incredible undertaking requiring high-tech filmmaking techniques, painstaking work, and a trek to Kenya — and the filmmakers need your help to preserve the presence of these majestic creatures.
