Eco Factor: Device collects water droplets from thin air.
The United Nations estimates that by the year 2025 more than 66 percent of the world’s population will be suffering from water shortages. Though a waterless future is believed to be inevitable by many scientists, there is no shortage of brilliant minds that are working to save the world.
Industrial design student at Germany’s Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Imke Hoehler, has come up with a design that harvests potable water from thin air and mist. Dubbed the DropNet, the water collecting system can harvest up to 20 liters of clean water each day, and an array of several structures could supply a whole village with potable water.
