Sam Thorpe, a student from Otago University who grew up in Tauranga, has developed a water bottle that he hopes will help fight obesity.

9 months ago, Sam began developing the drink bottle that has pictures and games on the side, which are only visible when the bottle is filled with water or low-sugar drinks.

The aim of the bottle is to fight child obesity, tooth decay and diabetes, all of which can be contributed to by sugary drinks.

The drink bottle is known as the Flowbot and Sam hopes it will find its way onto shelves by next year.
