HOPE / Water filter


When the people in Africa find some liquid, they just need to put it into the water filter ball and wait, it will filter impurities and bacteria, then the user can reach the clean water from the output hole.
They can actually play with it as a ball. With the rubber coating, they don’t need to worry about breaking the ball. The ball will be spinning round, through the principle of centrifugal force will accelerate the speed and effectiveness of filtering. There will have some clean water waiting after playing. Children in Africa shouldn't need to worry about anything, just take back the smiles which should be on their faces in their ages.
