Flow / Seawater Purifier

Flow
Flow

“Flow” purifies sea water for shipwreck survivors. This idea came up while we saw the movie《life of pi》. Survivors who are waiting for rescue in the liferaft need tools to purify the flow seawater for drinking!
Pull the handle of "flow", aerate the air circle inside, at the same time, the anchor was also be put out to make "flow" stable floating in the sea. The transparent bubble on the inflatable cushion will also be spread, the sea water evaporate by the sun’s radiation,when the vapor meets the transparent bubble,it will be cooling into direct drinking pure water, Continue the life of the survivors!
