Back in July we wrote about design firm The Way We See The World's Jell-O cups, which could not only hold drinks but be eaten afterwards or dropped onto the grass whereupon they'd degrade into nutrient-rich mush. After plentiful public demand, the concept has spawned Jelloware, a Kickstarter project to bring the biodegradable, edible beakers to market.
The company is looking for $10,000 by January 26 2011 to get the project off the ground. Generous investors will get the chance to help Jelloware perfect the design with some hands-on (or lips-on) testing, while the exceptionally-generous will get a Jelloware cocktail party kit.
Part of that testing will include picking out the best flavors for the cups, which are each meant to compliment the drink that goes inside them. Early suggestions included lemon-basil, ginger-mint, and rosemary-beet.
