Beetle water tower / poster

Beetle water tower
Beetle water tower

In many dry areas, residents spend a lot of time and distance to get water,
and in some parts of Africa, they may even be attacked by wildlife on the road.
However, in the desert, some insects use the special convex shell of the body
to collect water in the air. We simulated a beetle's back to make a water tower.
The water droplets condensedon the top of the water tower will flow into
the recessed hole to collect water, so that the residents do'nt need to go far away and with danger of getting water.
