AN IDEA BORN FROM THE MOST BASIC HUMAN NEED: WATER
In 1988, bicycle enthusiast Michael Eidson competed in the "Hotter'N Hell 100." And that's exactly what it is: a 100-mile road race in the grueling summer heat of Texas. Water is vital to surviving the race, and there are few places to refill a water bottle. Eidson, an emergency medical technician by trade, decided to fill an IV bag with water and slip it into a white tube sock. Yes, a tube sock. He stuffed the contraption into the back of his bike jersey, threw the thin hose over his shoulder and clamped it with a clothespin. Hands-free hydration is born. Eidson was able to drink as he pedaled.
