What? You don’t know what a HYDRA Smart Water Bottle is? Don’t feel bad. It happens to be a new invention that I read about and backed on Indiegogo, the crowdfunding site.
As I have posted previously, I use the two crowdfunding sources, Kickstarter and Indiegogo, for cool new products and ideas. You can read about my Torch 2 Bike Helmet that lights up at night which was also crowdfunded.
The HYDRA Smart Bottle is a wonder for a bike rider like me. It was “Designed to bring modern creature comforts along for the ride.” One picture is worth a thousand words, so you can see all the features below.
The top is a detachable Bluetooth speaker for my iPhone music. It also functions as a radio. By pressing a button on the bottom, the bottle lights up and becomes a lantern. It can also flash red if I want to turn my water bottle into an illuminated flashing red lantern when I ride at night. The base when charged holds enough energy to charge my iPhone or a tablet when out.

They are just finishing shipping out the preorders for backers, so you can’t get one there yet. Amazon will be selling the bottles. Watch for them.
