GoBout: Carry all your Essentials in one Bottle

Customize, store and dispense multiple toiletries like shampoo, body wash, face wash, lotion and conditioner, all from one portable device. GoBout is the world’s first portable multi-dispenser that is completely customizable so that you can go anywhere, anytime.

GoBout makes it easy to pack all the liquids you need in one simple container. It is compact, spill-free, environmentally friendly and perfect for camping, road trips and traveling. 

 

 Pack lite and go anywhere, anytime!

  

Let’s face it: packing your toiletries is not the smoothest thing on earth. Traveling with separate containers consumes valuable space and the containers often leak. No matter how organized you try to be, keeping track of too many containers can be difficult. Thus, GoBout was invented with two goals: Simplicity and environmental friendly.

 

Before GoBout, we have been carrying separate travel size bottles, usually inside a plastic bag, for lack of a more suitable, smart and sustainable alternative. Millions of people use plastic containers and plastic bags to transport toiletries every day. Tens of billions of plastic toiletry containers end up in waste landfills every year. This needs to change if we are to save our planet from pollution. GoBout helps solve this crisis by offering a convenient, comprehensive way of reusing travel size bottles. You simply refill your capsules at home and store them in our beautiful housing dispenser. 

GoBout comes in two sizes: Large and small. 

For the large version, there are five capsules. Each capsule is less than 100ml or 3.4 ounces, which means at some airport security checks, you just have to remove the capsules from the main body. 

For the small version, there are four capsules. In total, the small version carries less than 100 ml or 3.4 ounces. You don't need to remove capsules from the main body because it complies with air travel rules. 

 

The biggest challenge in designing GoBout was achieving simplicity. How should the user select different products to dispense? How do we avoid accidental leaks? How to refill empty canisters in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way possible? We researched every conceivable dispensation method: Aerosal, compressed air, vacuum, etc.

In the end, we achieved all of our goals without sacrificing function or form. The final GoBout design is a simple, elegant solution to a real problem. 

A simple design means less complexity, better user experience, and less opportunity for malfunction.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge in designing GoBout was working with limited space to achieve simplicity. Some of the tough questions we faced were: How should the user select different products to dispense? How do we avoid accidental leaks? How to refill empty canisters in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way possible?

A simple solution is much more difficult than a complex one. After all, the whole purpose of the device is to simplify the user's life, not complicate it. In the end, we achieved all of our goals without sacrificing function or form.
