Innovation: Water Purifying Raincoat

Have you ever had the idea of sucking clean rainwater from your pockets? Well apparently designers Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble have came up with a raincoat to do just that! Raincatch is an innovative new raincoat that collects rain from a large collar. It is then sent through charcoal and a chemical purification process then into the water storage area. Clean water can then be sipped from the multiple straws leading from the pockets.

Of course, it would take a very long time to collect enough water to drink, but we have to acknowledge these guys for thinking up this fascinating new way to get good drinking water (and they have awesome music for their video).
