Being out and on the go with your little one usually means asking someone to heat up a bottle for you, or administering a cold meal. Karim Rashid has taken things to the next level and has created a self-heating bottle that doesn't use any electricity. How's it work then you ask? Salt!
Karim Rashid has devised a way for the bottle and thus the contents inside, to be warmed by an inner layer of salt and water. When the salt combines with the water, it's rehydrated and the energy created from the process warms the bottle right up.
Each time you'd like to warm a bottle a new cartridge must be inserted to do so (called an iiamo warm), so it isn't an everyday type item, but we can definitely see where it would come in most handy when you're out at the park, out to dinner with friends or on the go while traveling.
Karim says this about his latest creation:
""Feeding a baby is a warm, intimate moment between parent and child. The bottle enables that human connection. Though a very functional product, a baby bottle doesn't need to be a strictly functional. Emotional and aesthetic appeal must be considered too. Children love reflective shiny colorful surfaces and materials – I do too – maybe I am still a child. So it was time to make a baby bottle a wild interesting sculptural colorful animated object so the baby actually gets excited about being fed."
