A team of scientist are working to create an edible water-bottle. Rodrigo González and his team first took a frozen ball of water and dipped it into a calcium chloride solution, which formed a gelatinous layer. Then, the ball soaked in another solution made from brown algae extract, which encapsulated the ice in a second squishy membrane to reinforce the structure. Keeping the water in the algae solution for long periods of time allows the mold to become thicker and stronger.

If you don't put it on a clean surface, it's probably not the best idea to just eat it up... The idea is good, but I'm afraid it lacks practical use.
