Water Volcano / Drinking Machine

Water Volcano

Water Volcano is designed for those who do not drink water in time or sufficiently.
Instead of using light, sound or vibration, it uses vapour for reminding people to drink water. Using water vapour as a signal for drinking water is direct and natural. When it is the time for drinking water, it humidifies the environment and keeps people from lacking moisture if it is not possible for them to drink at the time.
