As water shortage is a serious issue in many parts of the world, a means of efficiently harnessing safe drinking water from thin air could be a real lifesaver. Italy's Architecture and Vision is developing an off-grid bamboo tower called Warka Water that promises just that.
‘Warka Water’ ดูดน้ำจากอากาศสู่ชุมชนแห้งแล้งในเอธิโอเปีย http://www.chaipat.or.th/chaipat/index.php/th/concept-and-theory-development/air-products-fog
A new Kickstarter campaign is aiming to raise funds to build a device, which will be capable of harvesting safe drinking water from the air. The Warka Water, as it is called is an off-the-grid bamboo tower, which could, according to the developers, collect an annual average of 26.4 US gallons of water per day.
The tower is rated as lasting up to 10 years and will require that locals are trained in o...

With This Bio-Reactive Food Label, Sell-by Dates Could Become Obsolete #impactdesign
Bio Reactive, Food Decays, Packaging Bioreactivefoodlabel, Bioreactivefoodlabel Hopefully, Designer Solveiga, Expiry Label
Is food good past its expiration date? This Innovative new packing aims to cut down on food waste by letting you know! As the food decays, so does the packaging!
A Protein-Based Expiration Label Designer Solveiga Pakstaite's Bump Mark is a smarter system for labeling supermarket meat. It's a tiny patch of gelatin—essentially, protein—that decays at the same rate as meat. As it decays, the tag gets bumpy—and you know the meat inside is mimicking the same process.
The Bump Mark, designed by the UK winner Solveiga Pakstaite from Brunel University. The Bump Mark is a bio-reactive food label that turns bumpy when the food inside is going off.
As agriculture networks grow, food spoilage becomes a bigger and bigger problem. A team at Brunel University just won the James Dyson Award for 'Bump Mark,' which is a label made with organic gelatin compounds that decay when exposed to light or heat. If the label is bumpy and not smooth, then the food is bad. Bump Mark is able to tell you exactly the condition your food is in.
Smart Expiry Label Aims to Put an End to Food Waste. The Bump Mark label, designed by Solveiga Pakstaite from Brunel University, was named as the UK winner of the James Dyson Award for its innovative solution to a highly criticised problem.
Dyson Award winner Solveiga Pakstait from Brunel University. has developed bio-reactive food packaging.
