R²-Water&Rain
R²-Water&Rain

R2-Water&Rain is a machine which collects and recycles rain water. It can filter impurities and turn it to potable water. Nowadays, water shortage has become a global concern, so we have responsibility to use water resources as efficiently as possible.
R2-Water&Rain is placed outdoors, somewhere like plazas and communities. A huge water tank is placed under the machine, which can gather the roof rain, road rain and greening rain. Passing through the filtration system, rain can be turned into drinkable water, and then be well packaged. The packaged water is now available for sale in the vending machine behind.
