A foldable kettle might not be what you would call a life changing gadget but it could be a great travel companion for tea and coffee lovers. Industrial designer Stanislav Sabo must be a fan of hot beverages, as he's created a portable electric kettle concept which in his words is small enough to "put in the back pocket of your trousers."

Dubbed Novel, the foldable kettle is made from a unique heatproof plastic which is lined with 100 percent silicone. The plastic can be heated to boiling point without any problem, while the silicone allows the kettle to fold in and out of shape. The kettle folds flat to easily slide into a laptop case or weekend bag and comes with a bayonet adapter, allowing it to be plugged into normal wall sockets.

The Novel also features magnetic fasteners click the lid and base into place when in use. The magnets also help minimize the size of the kettle when it has been folded down, keeping it flat and secure when on the move.

The Novel Kettle was selected to be part of the Behance Student Show, which showcases a series of works by creative student designers.

A fold-up kettle is ideal for traveling. But then it must be able to handle 110V as well as 220V. Can this kettle do this?

It could also be used to make hot cocoa, ramen noodles and other foods that needs hot water in its preparation. I think it would also be great for campers (where an electrical outlet is available but space is at a premium). I think it has a futuristic look to it.

Shouldn't it come with a matching set of collapsable cups?

How about a temperature setting as well. Also will it ever be for sale. Looks like one of those great art products that never go for sale to the general public. This looks like great kickstarter potential to me.

Marvellous invention. I have never seen something like it before. It got me really curious especially since I am a coffee lover. It would be a very good product to have when travelling. Think I'll order one and give it a try. Seems like a very promising product that can be a good companion when travelling.

Where can I buy one?
