This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
It may be easy to drink water, but according to the latest research, 95.3% of people do not have good water consumption habits—65.9% drink water only when thirsty, while only 4.7% regularly drink healthy amounts of water. Although water deficiency causes poor health and various diseases, we still always forget to drink enough. Water is essential to leading a healthy life, so they invented Seed, a smart bottle that helps you subconsciously form healthier habits. Seed actively tracks your daily hydration habits and uploads real-time data to an app or other smart fitness device where you can check your progress. Users can receive scientific feedback while managing their hydration plan in their app.
Seed’s built-in smart water consumption algorithms compute your body’s hydration needs according to water intake, body composition, daily activity level, and outside temperature. With this information, Seed will custom design a water intake schedule that meets your individual needs. Through small vibrations and the LED display, Seed will remind you when you have forgotten to drink enough water. Seed’s interactive LED touchscreen lid displays real-time water temperature when touched or opened, and displays daily water consumption when closed. The system will warn you before drinking if the water is dangerously hot or stale. With your support, they will be able to complete our initial minimum order and bring SEED to the global market.
As of January 14th, this project has raised around $220,000 of their $20,000 goal. This project only has 26 days left to raise as much as it can! For a pledge of $44, you will get one Seed Bottle 12 oz. For a pledge of $240, you will get a Seed Bottle 5-pack any size.
