Futuristic Coat Turns Rain Into Drinkable Water
Two design students from Denmark have put together a raincoat that doubles as a personal drinking water collector. The unusual looking Raincatch coat purifies rain drops by passing it through a charcoal filter which can eliminate harmful pollutants, chemicals and debris. The drinkable water is then stored in a hidden reservoir at the bottom of the raincoat and can be drank instantly via a specially built-in straw.
The Raincatch coat was designed by Hyeona Yang and Joseph Noble, who are currently students at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design.
