Water purifying ball by Jonathan Liow

The Solarball is a graduate`s project of Jonathan Liow, who has decided after a trip to Cambodia to utilize his designer talent to create something that could help people in the Third world enduring critical lack of clean and drinkable water. When put on the direct sun, the Solarball can clean up to three liters of water per day. Thanks to the sun the contaminated water evaporates out. As the result, only a water condensation will be kept inside the ball which is safe and clean. Liow`s Sollarball is just a prototype dealing with a number of problems, as the little quantity of water that it can produce or durability of the plastic. Anyway, his pioneer design get him to the final of the 2011 Australian Design Award-James Dyson Award.

  3. If i store there 3 litres of water and wait for the sun to evaporize and clean the water, how many litres of water will be left inside the solar ball? what if i put there a super contaminated water, will i be able to drink half of clean water in it or 1/4 of it only?

  4. so amazing, hope he kept working on it… such an amazing design!!!
