With an easy click button on the cap, you will be able to open, drink, and close your bottle without ever having to unscrew the cap.
The whole goal is to get the bottle in the production. We have already finished our 3D rendering of the final bottle as well as the design files and have already lined up our manufacturing facility. Two prototypes have been made with our manufacturer to test the bottle design as well as physically see the construction of it.
The actual prototype was a near perfect design except for the button on the bottle. Unfortunately, the bottle's button was raised higher than expected and unfortunately another revision would need to be made. A revised prototype is being made as we speak and we will update the project as soon as we get the new cap design back.
The next step on our timeline for this bottle is to just get it funded to create the actual mould and place initial minimum order with the manufacturer to get it into production. Our estimated time on the mould is about 2-3 weeks. However, I’m not sure how the holidays will affect the production time. The bottle production itself is about 1 week and shipment from past experience is about 4-6 weeks. So in total, we are looking at a 2 month process before the bottle can actually arrive.
The bottles will be complete with a new retail packaging. The idea is that the bottle should be ready as a final ready to use product. There would be no more revisions once the project has met the intended goal.

Creating a unique bottle that didn't look like others was almost impossible to say the least. All bottles we designed over time starts to resemble other bottles. I personally ran into the problem of wanting to go too abstract and make a bottle not cylindrical but it just didn't work out. Oddly shaped bottles just don’t fit well in most cup holders and didn't look like it would feel nice in the hand. So we had to draw out many designs and eventually we came to the premise of combining bottle designs. We made a bottle with a cut out so you can actually see the water yet at the same have a nice looking bottle that's unique.
A two layered bottle ensured that the bottle was going to be durable and rock hard. At first, we wanted to make the bottle out of glass yet the glass idea created two problems. The first problem was weight - the glass already is heavy and adding water weight to it just meant that this bottle seemed too heavy for most people to feel comfortable enough to carry around on the daily basis. The second problem was fragility - even for heavy duty glass, it seemed scary to bring around the gym any vigorous activity. I remember going to the gym and looking around and nobody had a glass bottle. It makes sense though because glass can easily break at a gym with everyone walking and throwing their gym bags around.
It was important to find a way to make drinking water more pleasurable and convenient. I really thought that making a button to open a bottle without having to remove a cap would be so more convenient then twisting a cap completely off. This way someone can actually have at least one hand still free to do whatever they need to do while holding a bottle.
Having this bottle really changed how my mind thought about things and how small changes can make a big difference in the long run. This may be a stepping stone to other related water products that can be fixed with a simple button.
The bottle size is 2.75" diameter x 10.5" height (from the very top to bottom). It currently holds 16.9 oz or 500 ml.
