Aquaduct: Mobile Filtration Vehicle


The Aquaduct is pedal powered vehicle that transports, filters, and stores water for the developing world. A peristaltic pump attached to the pedal crank draws water from a large tank, through a filter, to a smaller clean tank. The clean tank is removable and closed for contamination-free home storage and use. A clutch engages and disengages the drive belt from the pedal crank, enabling the rider to filter the water while traveling or while stationary.

That's a great idea. Every Christmas my dad donates to Trocaire. Last year he bought someone in Guatemala a weaving loom. I'm sure if there's a magic water bicycle on the list this year, he'll get them one. :-)

That's a really meaningful site for making a donation to others in need. Thanks for sharing! :)
