Fontus – The World’s First Self Filling Water Bottle

HARVESTING WATER FROM THE AIR IS A METHOD THAT HAS BEEN PRACTISED FOR MORE THAN 2000 YEARS. THE EARTH’S ATMOSPHERE CONTAINS CONSTANTLY AROUND 13.000 KM3 OF MOSTLY UNEXPLOITED FRESHWATER. THE FONTUS PROJECT WAS AN ATTEMPT TO DISCOVER THESE RESOURCES.
FONTUS WAS INVENTED TO BRING AN ALTERNATIVE WAY OF COLLECTING SAFE DRINKING WATER TO REGIONS WHERE DROUGHT AND UNCLEAN WATER ARE A BIG ISSUE. BIKES, AS THE MOST WIDESPREAD MEANS OF TRANSPORT IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, SEEMED TO BE THE PERFECT VEHICLES TO COMBINE WITH THE INVENTION.

FONTUS RYDE AND AIRO MIGHT BE A CLEVER WAY OF ACQUIRING FRESHWATER IN REGIONS OF THE WORLD WHERE GROUNDWATER IS SCARCE BUT AIR HUMIDITY IS HIGH. THEY COULD WORK AS A MOBILE WATER WELL, FOR EXAMPLE, PROVIDING A CHILD WITH WATER FOR THE DAY WHILE RIDING TO SCHOOL.
