Beetle Inspired Water Collector For The Desert! #Biomimicry

NewImage

Yanko Designs created the DewBank,a simple dew collecting device that found it’s inspirations from the Namibian Beetle

The onymacris unguicularis is a beetle found in the Namibian desert and has the most unique way of procuring water. Early in the morning, when the dew enriched fog is settled over the dunes, the beetle goes to the peak and positions its body in such a way that it helps in dew formation, and slurps up the water thus formed. Using this technique is the Dew Bank Bottle. It’s made is such a way that the steel body helps to assimilate the morning dew and channel it into the bottle immediately. Ideal for the nomads in the desert!
