Edible packaging lets you drink a beverage & eat the bottle too

Dr. David Edwards, a professor at Harvard University, is working on the  WikiCells project that looks into creating edible packaging. A few years ago,  Edwards collaborated with French designer François Azambourg on an edible bottle  that’s made from organic materials and is biodegradable. These WikiCell  membranes can hold the drink together and could also be consumed afterwards.  These membranes could be made out of something tasty, like chocolate or  candy.

So far, the feedback has been quite  positive and now the issue is, as Edwards states, “stability in an uncontrolled  environment and getting this out at a scale.”
