HOPE / Water filter ball

HOPE
HOPE

This is a water filter which created in ball shape, when the people in Africa go out and find some liquid, they just need to put it into the water filter ball and wait, the ball will filter impurities and bacteria, then the user can reach the clean water from the output hole.

When the user is a child, they can use this water filter ball actually as a ball and play with it. Through the principle of centrifugal force will accelerate the speed and effectiveness of filtering. Why I named it “Hope”? Because I want the children in Africa don’t need to worry about anything, and take back the smiles which should be on their faces in their ages.
