Andrew Leininen has designed an umbrella that catches water as well as keeping you dry. The water flows down the stem of the brollie, through a filter and then into a bottle. The umbrella filters the water through a carbon filter on the way through, producing clean and potable drinking water

So its very foggy in Melbourne right now hey? How about this then- these
‘nets’ collect fog and dew and can produce up to 1 litre of fresh water per day. Not much I hear you say… every little bit counts. These nets were designed for countries such as Nepal and Chile where potable ground water is scarce.
George Sawyer has designed a small, portable version of the nets for hiking or camping.
