The Raincatch Raincoat Turns Rainwater to Drinking Water As You Go

I feel like an impending water shortage is about to hit Earth pretty soon. I mean, there’s a drought stricken town in Texas that’s going to be recycling urine soon for drinking water, for crying out loud. NASA even has their own urine recycler that’s also good to go.

Raincatch Raincoat

I get the whole thing with wanting to recycle water, but what I don’t understand is why a lot of scientists are going to great extremes in trying to turn urine into something that can be drinkable again. I mean, why not find better ways to desalinate sea water? Or better yet, develop something like the Raincatch raincoat that turns rainwater into drinking water on the go?

That’s right folks. The Raincatch by Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble isn’t just your normal old raincoat. It was actually made to collect rainwater and then purify it by passing the water through charcoal filters. The water will be stored in the shoulders of the coat and sipped via the straw near the collar.

Obviously the Raincatch is a concept for now, but it’s one invention I’d choose any day over the urine-recycling processes.
