X-container / transformable container


“X-container” is made of Hypothermia Thermoplastic which has a low softening point. When heated by warm water or air whose temperature is higher than 50℃, “X-container” becomes transformable, full of elasticity, just like plasticine.

While it is cool down, it keeps its shape. As a result, you can change its shape to whatever you want.

After using, you can just heat it again and it will restore to its original shape which is easy to be stored and transported.
