'Savior Bud' Gathers Potable Moisture from Tree Leaves
The portable water collection device can be attached to tree leaves, where it captures water and stores it in a container. It takes the Savior Bud about four hours to collect a cup of water.
Implications - Water is a scarce resource in Africa, and the Savior Bud is a substantial step towards conserving fresh water for the famished and impoverished population. The process begins by collecting leftover moisture from leaves and emptying it into containers. The hydration impediments in Africa stem from a lack of availability, but also polluted and undrinkable water. Savior Bud is a hopeful beginning.
