Dew collecting shed

Dew collecting shed allows climbers collect clean water to use when camping. On the surface of tents, there are polymer films where places silicon nanoparticles. Besides, they are smeared with fluoride which is endowed with water repellent function. Acid molecules and nanoparticles will mix together and form rows of absorbent dots which keep dew from staying in tents. When dew condensed, they will gather together and fall down to the water bag along the track. With the caliber of general water bottles, you can replace water bag with empty PET bottles to collect dew which achieve environmental benefits.
