Japanese firm, Nippon Basic Company, has invented a bike that also doubles up as a water purifier. The Cycloclean is equipped with a pump and hoses and requires the user to put it on a stand and pedal it for the cycle to suck up water through a series of filters. The bike can purify up to five litres of water in a minute and features puncture-free tires, making it a great mobile gadget that can be taken near any water source and produce clean, drinking water from it. Perfect for remote villages, disaster zones and bike riders.

Cycloclean is already being used in Japan and a few neighboring countries and plans to expand its production in Bangladesh that would help reduce its present cost of over $6,000.
