If the annoyance of carrying around a big ol’ water bottle with you everywhere is the main reason you don’t drink enough water, you should definitely consider the Que Bottle.

On the surface, it might look like the bottle’s upward swirl is just about giving an edgy twist to a new water bottle design, but it’s so much more than that.

When the bottle is empty, you can actually twirl it down into a more compact version of itself. The rubber bottle shrinks from 8 1/2 inches tall to about 5 1/2 inches, making it easier to slip into your bag or pocket when it’s empty. When it’s time to fill up again, just unscrew the stainless steel top and stretch it back out again.

The bottle can also handle hot drinks and is dishwasher safe. The one downside is that, in the extended state, it can be a bit wobbly and fold in on itself, but if you keep the tip screwed on when it’s not in use you shouldn’t have any spillage problems—it is super secure.

Que Bottle started on Kickstarter, where backers raised more than $614,000 to make it a reality. Pretty impressive, given that their original goal was just $20,000. Check out everything it can do in the video:
