Team Tesla has designed a two-bottle water filtration system using standard plastic bottles. One bottle is used as the funnel of the system and the second ‘receiving’ bottle as the storage. Dirty water passes through the filter element to remove contaminated particles producing water suitable for human consumption.
This filtration system can be used over and over again and plastic bottles are readily available.
Inspiration: Disaster relief. In the event of a natural disaster, each filter can provide approximately 70 liters of uncontaminated water. Also, this sustainable invention addresses the problem of people in developing countries drinking from dirty water sources.
An energy generation device using pedal power
Team Babbage has created an energy conservation concept inspired by pedal power. The plan is to mount a disc on the wheel spindle of a bicycle, which generates electricity as it spins. This energy will be used to charge the batteries of smartphones and tablets. Initially conceived as a retrofit design for proof of concept, the team’s ambition is to get the device fitted to bikes as standard during manufacturing.
Inspiration: Energy conservation and reducing carbon footprint.
