Playtime Power

oasisaw_00

OasiSaw is an innovative water pump system that utilizes human play to extract ground water. The iconic seesaw design harnesses energy created during play to not only pump, but filter water using a carbon nanotube filter. It’s work without seeming like work! Playing produces clean, drinkable water for both users and neighbors with whom to share.

    Good attempt to solve social issue by designing such product, great combo of play and usability. I have few suggestion on it, if kids just want to play with it and there is no necessity of water then also this would pump water out and thus would waste it where underground water level is too important for the drought areas. So there should be provision of a lever to on-off the water pump and inlet. Second thing overall technically this won’t work as line of circular movement of hinge given at piston is different than the piston’s vertical movement of line.
