3D Dew condenser

Similar projects worth following
Problem : People in remote areas have no access to clean water

We want to build a 3D dew condenser to save ground surface compared to standard dew condenser that are using large nets and take a lot a space. Reducing the amount of space used by one device would allow to increase drastically the production/surface ratio thus to produce more water.

1°) Objectives

  • Collect dew water that can be drunk without post treatment
  • Improve already existing designs by reducing the amount of ground surface needed (check file pictures)
  • Do it cheaper

2°) Researches we've done

    • Week 1:
      • Brainstorming
    • Week 2:
      • We choose the project and form the groups: F3Dew was born. Creation of the twitter and the hackaday pages
    • Week 3:
      • Beginning of the researches and fulfil the hackaday and twitter page with information
    • Week 4:
      • Birth of the design and the main idea: a 3D hydrophobic dew condenser. Discussion with a hackaday user.
    • Week 5:
      • The design of the dew condenser is finished!!! We think about the material that we’ll use. We order a hydrophobic spray to transform our surface.
    • Week 6:
      • We bought cones to make the dew condenser, the main object is on his way. Hackaday page has been rebuild.
    • Week 7:
      • We are making progress on the Hackaday page and we are thinking about a second thought : make a dew condenser with only pieces of plastic. The research begin

Low tech system that is around for ages.

>First we focused on a cooling system that would make our surface temperature to drop in order to condensate water

Might want to read what you wrote.  I point out low tech cooling system.

  Are you sure? yes | no

Don't bring up a few paragraphs of fluff of what you are not going to do when your main object is a single sentence.

not read a novel here.  Don't blame the reader when you are a bad writer.

  Are you sure? yes | no
