Paper burning in the presence of fire is anything but unexpected, but paper used to boil water? Anything but ordinary. The Hexa Pot, shown above, is a special camping pot made of paper that is specifically designed to withstand temperatures of up to 100 degrees Celsius and easily folds into a three-dimensional hexagon, hence its name. A convenient tool for rugged hiking or camping adventures, the eco-friendly Hexa pot is made of recyclable materials and is 100% biodegradable. From Hexa Pot’s Kickstarter page:

The main intended use is for cooking liquid food such as water, coffee, milk, hot chocolate, green tea, etc.  It has been tested to also be used for cooking pasta, soup, chili, shabu shabu, ramen noodles, or udon, etc., as long as it contains liquid.  Another intended use is when preparing for a possible emergency situation.  Hexa Pot™ can be used for sterilizing and disinfecting contaminated water in an aftermath disaster situation where there is no access to drinkable water.
