in the state of California :D

any way this is an interesting development maybe they can use it to compliment other traditional materials for say... vibration dampening??? if you can make it about as strong as plastic... well don't get your cellphone wet :D

Could make for a funny joke.... put a few pounds of this stuff in some ones pool and get them to jump in while you video it for Youtube.

That is if you can just add water to it er add it to water? Also if you can just add it to water this might be great for toxic spill clean ups.

Technically no.

That said, you could probably eat it depending on what the "organic material" is, and how it interacts with the chemical composition of the water.

UH HELLLOOOOO!!! Like we need another reason to consume MORE water. We're already on our way to a global fresh water shortage. This solves one problem (replacement for plastic) and causes/worsens another (future water shortages). How bout we make everything out of glass? jk, but honestly this won't help much at all.

I wonder what this "organic material" actually is. Just because it's organic doesn't mean it's perfectly safe for humans or the environment.

kami3k,

I'm guessing it's CHON. The molecule forms a clear substance that absorbs water like crazy. Looks like jello when full of water. Looks like sand when completely dried out.
