HydroLily

Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation

HydroLily

The HydroLily is a device that turns air into water by accelerating natural condensation processes, offering the potential to provide drinking water to remote areas. Inspired by the water lily, the system takes the form of a tetrahedral “stem” and a woven wood basket and includes solar panels that power a thermoelectric cooler to create condensation. During testing, the device produced an average of 291 mL of water every day and produced a full liter on sunnier days, when the system’s solar panels were more fully used.
