The first Capsules were crafted near the turn of the century, around SY1990. Initially, capsules were homemade in garages by master craftsmen and Augurs. Dangerous and unpredictable, these were largely banned in most civilized society. However around SY2000, a large group of Augur Engineers and Skilled Artisans produced the first commercial version, thus bridging the gap between Wight and Augur. Crafted with great care out of Auguring sensitive materials, and put through rigorous testing, the first consumer capsules on the market were unveiled in SY2010.
The very first consumer ready capsule was simply called The God's Nectar, or GN-1. A simple yet profound Augury was inscribed to it: The ability to create water. Before this capsule, water was sold in bulk in large containers. The first GN-1's could produce an amount of potable drinking water, equivalent to five typical bottles of water. With access to clean, fresh water the GN-1's were an unspoken promise of prosperity and progressiveness for the entire world.
An Encapsulating Problem
There were still issues with the GN-1's, they were single use, broke easily and where pretty large, and required 500ml of uncompressed energy to be useful. With alleviating one problem, capsules created another, waste. At first people would throw them away just as any other trash. But very quickly it was discovered that the Auguring Sensitive material components would leak residual energy into the environment, creating toxic waste near their origin. People who would come into contact with this emission would fall terribly ill and die within days. Thankfully, their sickness was non-contagious, it was almost always fatal. However, through funding, and an extreme public interest in it's development, the problems of the GN-1's were quickly remedied, and the next few iterations were better than the last.
A Call for Enviro-Mentalism
The early problems of the GN-1 were sorted out quickly. A ban of dumping them was a crucial law, one of the first, laid down for capsule fabrication and distribution. The engineering of the GN-2 gave it far better stability, it could be dropped on soft surfaces, gripped firmly, and resist temperatures of -12 Celsius to 65 Celsius. They were still being found in garbage and the sickness that brought still had an impact. The GN-3 was a new frontier in re-usability. The older top nozzle was redesigned to accept energy as well as expel it.
