BREATHING / water collector


BREATHING is a large device which absorbs moisture in air and supplies drinking water. With its top structure greatly increasing the area exposed to air, moisture in the air is absorbed from the top of the device and flows to the middle body to be filtered and then becomes drinkable water at the bottom.
The fan on top of the device increases air flow and improves conversion efficiency.
A new approach to water collection is used to provide safe and healthy drinking water to the tramp and stray animals in the city, bringing convenience and hope to the people.
