Nature has devised some convenient ways to protect foods until we're ready to eat them -- bananas have nice yellow peels, grapes come in handy bunches, etc. People have also devised a few interesting packages for food (not just Pringles cans), but there's always some room for improvement. Here are just a few examples of some ways to store food/drinks in interesting ways.
- Almost everyone can recognize an egg carton -- a container design that's well over 50 years old. However, the humble egg carton might still evolve if an "eggbox" design (that can fold flat) gets commercial interest. [url]
- Coca Cola is experimenting with a Coke bottle made of ice, but it's only being sold in Colombia. Looks like a cool idea to have the bottle melt away, but the refrigeration necessary to store the bottles isn't too environmentally friendly. (Also, you have to drink it all in one sitting?) [url]
- You can get a 12-course meal to fit into a can -- and you don't even need a can opener to eat it. The pop-top can contains 12 layers of deliciously compacted food, but you have to be a bit careful about getting everything out so you don't mix up the appetizer with the dessert. [url]
