A Timer Cap For Water Bottles Reminds You to Hydrate Every Hour

Your body relies on H2O to help keep you from overheating, and just carrying around a water bottle as a fashion accessory isn't enough. You actually need to drink it, so Vittel created a bottle cap alternative that reminds you every hour to keep drinking.

The action of screwing the cap onto the bottle automatically sets a built-in mechanical timer that ticks away for a full hour. When the time is up, a tiny plastic flag pops-up, serving as a visual reminder that it's been a whole 60 minutes since you've had any water — and you need to remedy that ASAP.

Initially launched in France to test consumer reactions, this bottlecap design will hopefully find its way here before next summer. [Vimeo via Taxi]
