interesting concept, here is the link to their Facebook page if someone is more interested.
The concept seems easy to be produced and will probably have an affordable cost for many undeveloped areas in the world. In their Indiegogo campaign they started, they give the first prototypes for less than 150€ and the model produced should provide enough water for an entire family of 4 people. Does any of you have a more detailed idea about this numbers and its eventual diffusion feasibility in African countries?
Cool! haha just saw it Jacopo Sala. thanks! ^^
I wonder about the applicability regarding the humidity in the air in some areas. I guess there's always a minimum content of water but is it always enough to make it worth it?
Joshua Leupolz, inspiring stuff indeed!
I have been following another company with a product named Warka Water which I suppose wants to use the same principle, but using a very big structure in order to reach higher levels of humidity (or at least I asssume this is the reason), creating this way also a community space where the people can chill in the shadow.
I like the one you shared because it looks smaller and a little bit less invasive but I am worried about the moving parts: as we know, one of the main issues of turbines in rural areas is maintenance as they break down due to wrong usage, dust and many other things (some culture they trow stones against turbines because they think there are ghost moving them).
However, I really hope that at least one of these two concepts can kick in the market and solve part of the problem! So far solar water pumping system ended up to be the most viable solution (if the excess of energy produced is somehow distributed among households or sold to the grid).
