Futuristic Coat Turns Rain Into Drinkable Water

A new concept raincoat doubles as a water collector that can catch and purify rain drops so you can drink while you wear it.

Two design students from Denmark have put together a raincoat that doubles as a personal drinking water collector. The unusual looking Raincatch coat purifies rain drops by passing it through a charcoal filter which can eliminate harmful pollutants, chemicals and debris. The drinkable water is then stored in a hidden reservoir at the bottom of the raincoat and can be drank instantly via a specially built-in straw.

The Raincatch coat was designed by Hyeona Yang and Joseph Noble, who are currently students at the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. Watch the video below to see how the Raincatch coat works.
