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.”
