An empty bottle can often be quite a nuisance. It’s essentially a useless, hollow, bulky and heavy container that holds nothing, but occupies space in your bag. Space that could be used to carry other valuable stuff. While this isn’t an incredibly burdening problem, it’s an annoyance and an inconvenience that man could do without, so we can focus on the real issues (like global warming, or relocating to Mars); and that’s where the Space Shaker helps us. It takes our minds off the burden of space-occupying empty bottles so we can perhaps achieve interplanetary travel a little bit faster!
Made using a bellow, the same kind you’d see in accordions and jack-in-the-boxes, the Space Shaker is a 600ml bottle that collapses down to practically a third of its size when empty. Designed for anything from water, to juices, to even protein shakes, the Space Shaker bottle conveniently stays small when you need it to be compact, and opens out into a bottle with 600 milliliters of capacity when opened out. The bottle comes made from a 100% BPA free, food-grade plastic that’s flexible enough to allow the bottle to collapse and expand at will, and comes with a silicone O-ring at its mouth for a perfect, air-tight seal, allowing you to use the bottle for making protein/supplement shakes. The bottle comes with a regular metal cap as well as an additional infuser/mixer cap that allows you to create infusions or blend protein powders into your water/milk.
The bottle’s bellow-shaped body proves extremely useful when it comes to traveling with it. Its space-saving design allows you to carry three bottles in the same space required for one single bottle, and the bellow’s ridges allow you to create frothy, creamy shakes. The obvious down-side is cleaning the bottle, since a lot of liquid would accumulate in these ridges. The Space Shaker, however, is dishwasher friendly, which makes cleaning it slightly easier. A perfect bottle to take with you on the go, the Space Shaker fits easily in bags, backpacks, and even in fanny packs. Its water-tight design ensures that aside from being an incredibly convenient, compact solution, it’s also a complete no-hassle sort of bottle. So lets move on to conquering our bigger problems! Mars 2030!
