This is the Gel-Bot, brought to you by Hydrapak (the company that makes those nifty backpacks with the integrated water packs). It combines a water reservoir and an energy gel reservoir in the same bottle, and by moving the drinking valve in or out and squeezing, you can switch between water and gel without using your hands. What appeals to me is the idea of eating and drinking at the same time with no chewing, perfect for those moments when I just don’t feel like making the arduous trip from the couch to the fridge. Oh, and I guess it would be good for athletes, too. Unfortunately, I can’t find the Gel-Bot in Hydrapak’s catalog, so I have no idea how to get one.
