Korean designers Jung Hwan Song and Kim Jong Won have come up with a concept device that could recycle domestic wastewater and leftover soap into a brand new bar of soap.

Re-Q is an eco-friendly DIY soap maker with a futuristic design in the shape of water droplets. The three sphere compartments outline the soap-making process. Simply pour in the dirty water in the top sphere and load up the fragments of used soap in the middle sphere. Re-Q will then purify the graywater, mix it with the used soap bits and then process the mixture into new bars of soap.
