AQUAIR

AQUAIR is a portable fog-harvesting device that pulls potable water out of the air.

Designed for use in remote mountainous areas in tropical latitudes, AQUAIR can be easily assembled with the addition of locally sourced materials. AQUAIR collects water through a mesh waterproof fabric that is stretched across a bamboo structure to maximize airflow. The key to AQUAIR’s design is its fan and small centrifuge that use gravity to draw collected water vapor down a tube and into a bucket. The collapsible structure can be assembled by hand, while locally sourced rocks and bamboo can be used for the weight and tensile structure, respectively.
