Raincatch raincoat turns rain into clean drinking water on the go


Now this is useful tech. Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble have devised a raincoat, dubbed Raincatch, that catches rain water and turns it into clean drinking water on the fly. This could actually, you know, help people.

It catches the rainwater and charcoal filters it, thereby purifying it. Then you affix the end of the spigot/straw and you drink up. Elegant simplicity at its finest. This is perfect for polluted areas where drinking water may not always be the best life choice.

Of course, the two designers have stated this is just in the initial stages for now. Don’t go to Spencer’s Gifts looking for one or anything. Not yet anyways.
