Water Bottle of The Future is a Cyborg System That Minimizes The Need to Drink
Jun 13, 2012 12:40
Japanese design studio Takram was asked to design a water bottle for people to use after a hypothetical future environmental disaster. So Takram imagined the world with rising sea levels and radioactive disasters, and figured that we probably wouldn't be carrying around water bottles. Instead they came up with an entirely new organ system to be implanted in the body--meaning we used less water in the first place.
The solution is called the Hydrolemic System, which involves both harvesting more moisture from the air than our current bodies are capable of. It also retains the water we have, so Takram imagines that the system would require us to drink only 0.1 cups of water a day.
The system consists of inserts that go in our noses to convert moisture in the air we breath into water, and other inserts at the ends of our renal and digestive systems keep water from leaving by those routes. A collar on our neck helps prevent perspiration by turning our body heat into electricity, so that it doesn't make us perspire and lose precious liquid.
The only issue with this 'new water bottle' is that you'd have to go to a hospital to get it installed. So let's hope the water bottle of the future comes in a more sophisticated style than having to be a part of it.
Check out the gallery below:
HEAT IRRADIANT NECK COLLAR This collar radiates heat efficiently from the body, keeping you cool and preventing sweating.
HYDROLEMIC SYSTEM The whole system in a pleasantly designed case, before what would certainly be an unpleasant series of surgical procedures.
HYDROLEMIC SYSTEM This is the entire system, from nasal cavity inserts to arterial jugular heat exchangers.
HYDROLEMIC SYSTEM The system seen in the human body.
NASAL CAVITY INSERTS Inserted in the nose, these devices prevent the moisture from the air that you’re breathing from leaving your body, turning it back into water.
RUBEDO CANDIES These "candies" would be our new water source. Eat five of them a day, and you would have all the liquid you needed--your new implants would do the rest.
RENAL FECULAR DEHYDRATOR Other, er, bodily functions are also a significant source of water loss. This device would make sure that no liquid remained.
URINE CONCENTRATOR This extra bladder recycles all the liquid from your pee, so you don’t lose any water from normal bodily functions.
ARTERIAL-JUGULAR HEAT EXCHANGERS This device converts body heat into electricity. That electricity is then sent to the collar, where it’s converted back to heat and dissipated.
Introduction and Conclusion can cause the biggest problems for your research paper at college or university. You will be surprised, but the research part is not the most difficult one for a lot of students. The biggest problems they face when writing an Introduction and Conclusion. They don't know what can be included and what can't be included in these parts, while keeping a healthy balance between an introduction, body, and conclusion in terms of word count. Read more
Given the individuality and uniqueness of every person, some things in life have to be unified. White collars are to dress in the classic style to work, while pupils wear school uniform on a daily basis. This allows for consistency and accuracy in their respective institutions just like the formatting does in writing. For clear and digestible expression of ideas, essays follow a certain structure, consist of particular elements, and have a special layout. Read more
Bike ride is the most elementary form of transport. In earlier days, it was the first human powered vehicle that later transformed the face of automation. The first bicycle appeared around 400 years ago. Slowly innovation and technology shaped the rudimentary bicycle into the modern day road bike that we are so accustomed to see. Read more
