About

An idea was born during a late night discussion about the importance of staying hydrated and keeping a balanced diet - because coffee alone wasn't enough to keep our eyes open.

We realized that each of us has a few reusable bottles lying around, none of which satisfied all our individual needs - and they also pretty much looked the same.

The next day, we started working on a bottle that anyone could truly make their own. A bottle both functional and exciting. A bottle just for you.

OBO is a patent pending customizable modular bottle designed to help you stay hydrated - and nourished - throughout your day. 

With three fully interchangeable modules and a base that serves as a small compartment, OBO is more than just a reusable bottle - it's whatever you create!

Did You Know: A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute, and fewer than half are collected for recycling each year. Experts warn that some of it is already finding its way into the human food chain.

With OBO, we want to raise awareness about PET bottle pollution and help reduce such wastefulness. 

We admit it. We're not good at explaining things. Let our friend Radina show you why OBO is whatever you create (Subtitles available).

          

The first time we sat down to work on OBO, we set out to be meticulous about our belief that anybody will be able to make OBO their own - and that's why we came up with four color sets for you to choose from (more will be available through stretch goals or as special rewards).

We know it sounds cliché, but the possibilities are really endless. 

These are some of the many ways your OBO can serve you:

We’ll be eternally grateful if you pledge and hope you're not late to the party!

Don't worry, you don't have to choose your colors now. This option will open only after the campaign. Until then, you have all the time to decide.

We have worked extremely hard for the past year and we are very proud to present you our final high-precision prototype with a 90% resemblance to the real OBO. We have a manufacturer ready to produce, but we need your help to raise funds because we're a bunch of broke students with no capital.

We have learnt so much over the past year. From manufacturing and logistics all the way to 3D printing and visualizations. It has been a great journey and we had loads of fun.

A lot of our time was dedicated to OBO and that is why every pledge will mean the World to us. 

We hope you'll fall in love with OBO just like we did.

Why such a huge goal you might ask? Our team comprises of five young students, still trying to finish their degrees with an employable GPA. All that we have saved helped us to reach the stage of our final prototype. We can't, however, move on without your help. 

Even though our manufacturer has been extremely helpful, nothing is for free. Industrial moulds for plastic injection are very expensive, and due to OBO's modular design, we need a total of four moulds compared to the industry standard of two. We also need to meet the minimum amount of bottles required for production and international shipping is another financially exhausting process. 

Nevertheless, we are confident that OBO deserves to succeed and that you will not regret supporting us.

We believe in transparency and forward thinking. Even though OBO is a small project, every effort counts. Reusable bottles are one important way to reduce plastic waste. 

With OBO, we would like to help you save time by lowering the number of bottles you need every day to just one. Drink it your way.

And of course, a huge thanks goes to all our friends that helped us bring this project to life. A special thanks goes to Laila Stuvik, Arturo Carranza, Rami Al-Omari, Mateusz Pacholik, Dmytro Ogurtsov, Utomo Budi, Jojo Gatus, Renee Macasaet, Eddie Li, Radina Alexieva, Thanh Tham Luu, and Prince Ghuman. 

          

Risks and challenges

Not raising enough funds:

We are aware that our goal is high compared to similar campaigns - we are university students with little to no capital. We have managed to bootstrap our way through a series of prototypes, but due to OBO's singular design and the quality we would like to achieve, tooling and production costs are high.

Achieving our goal of funding will be just enough to cover tooling costs and manufacture the first batch for you - our very first customers.

Shipping in September 2018:

We will place the manufacturing order as soon as the campaign ends. We will review samples and assure the quality of each module in person during August in order to be ready to get OBO to your hands during September 2018 (we have a list of reputable fulfillment centers who will work with us around the clock to deliver OBO internationally).

If anything unexpected happens, we promise to keep you informed!
