Coolest Water Fountain EVER!

This spacey looking device is a real working public rain water filtering system called SKYWATER, developed in South Korea. Rain is collected from the ring and sent to holding tanks underground. When the flexible house is manipulated, water is sent back up thru the filtration system and out comes fresh drinking water. I have no idea why it looks the way it does but aesthetics aside, this is about the coolest water fountain I’ve ever seen.

    Harnessing the rain seems quite obvious, but it looks like it’s finally been tinkered with enough to actually work. I’m down!

    always needing a cup/bottle defeats the purpose of a drinking fountain…..

      Not entirely. When I end up going hiking through some random city, I take a bottle of water, and when it’s empty, I generally prefer a free water fountain over an overpriced bottle of water destined to make it’s way to a landfill when I’m done.

    O-v-e-r-c-o-m-p-l-i-c-a-t-e-d design… Looks more like a shower to me…

    P.S.- That hose will get vandalized 😉

    You wont get too much water from one of these.

    Better to just purify drainwater…

    Wonder if the product’s name “Coway” is meant to imply the hose dispensor is a cow like udder..
