AQUAIR

Inspired by water shortages in rural farming areas, the low-cost Aquair collects water by stretching a waterproof, mesh fabric across a collapsible bamboo structure to maximize the airflow.

The design is reliant on a fan and small centrifuge that use gravity (in the form of 30-kilogram weight) to draw collected water vapor down a tube and into a bucket. Aquair can be assembled by hand, while locally sourced rocks and bamboo can be used to complete the system.
