The HydraCoach. Forget about nagging grannies, get yourself a nagging water bottle. This baby calculates what you need, tracks every sip you take and ‘motivates individuals to maintain proper hydration.’ Sounds yummy. They’re calling it the intelligent water bottle. We’re just calling it nosy. $29.99. [Via Seihin]
HydraCoach was created from the personal hydration needs of Craig and Kelly Perkins, both lifelong avid outdoor enthusiasts. In 1996 the two were attempting to hike to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite, amazingly just 10 months after Kelly had undergone a heart transplant. During their descent Kelly became severely dehydrated, turning a triumphant comeback adventure into a nightmare epic, and putting Kelly back in the hospital.
