Daily I take for granted my access to clean water.  It may not be the best tasting, but it’s clean nonetheless.  Many countries, which constitutes 1.1 billion people, struggle everyday to acquire clean drinking water simply because they don’t have the means necessary to filter it.  Enter the Aquaduct bike.  Fill up the 8 liter tank, pedal, and your sweat equity powers a pump that pushes the water through on an onboard filtration system to create clean and drinkable water.

The Aquaduct concept bike is the brain child of IDEO, and was winner at this years ‘08 Innovate or Die competition sponsored by Google.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
