If you live in a flat in a big city, and have managed to find a little room on your tiny balcony for a modest garden, you probably don't have much space left for the tools needed to toil over your cramped crops. So inventor Marc R. came up with this rather clever soft sided watering can called the Squish that's thin and easy to store when it's empty.
Marc is working with Quirky to make the Squish a reality, but in the meantime we can marvel at its design. Featuring a canvas bladder like ones many canteens are made from, the Squish expands from just one inch thick when empty and stored to eight inches across when full of water. It can hold up to a full gallon of water, and features a folding spout that helps minimise the Squish's footprint even further. And now that the design is nearly finalized, hopefully Quirky will get this into production and on the shelves in time for your Spring planting. [Quirky via InventorSpot]
