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. It doesn’t compare to the best water filter systems, but it’s cool.
The Aquaduct concept bike is the brain child of IDEO, and was winner at this years ‘08 Innovate or Die competition sponsored by Google.
