Water is quite precious in arid regions.This design can help to get drinking water from the rain or the water vapour in the air both in and outside the tent.

1. The inverted pyramid top of the tent is used to collect rainwater.The water will then be purified by the activated carbon and collected in a bottle.

2. The internal surface of the top is made of one porous material on which the water vapor can easily condense.When we take activities or just breathe in the tent,water vapor is emitted.The water vapor will condenses on the top of the tent and flow together to the activated carbon,be purified and the collected by the bottle.
