Water filtering trike
My Dad is a national rep for a water treatment company and I spent 6 years working with him, studying water chemistry and learning all about water treatment. So whenever I see some new technology in water treatment and purification, I perk up.
Well some pretty awesome folks over at IDEO came up with a concept for a trike that hauls and filters water as you ride. Imagine all those people in the 3rd world who walk miles and miles for water; they could ride and have clean drinking water by the time they get back. It's just such an amazing concept; I hope it becomes reality.
