Savior Bud Device Produces Drinking Water from Tree Leaves

Drinking water is all around us — if we know where to look.  The Giving Tree-inspired Savior Bud designed by Seol Ah Sun and Kim Hyo Jin is a portable device that attaches to tree leaves and slowly collects water.  After four hours, a full cup of water is ready for drinking.

Just turn the handle at the tip of the Savior Bud, and voila, water drips down for consumption.  The device’s silicone rubber body ensures that it stays resistant to heat, cold, and corrosion.  Of course, users still drink at their own peril — the Savior Bud doesn’t include a filter.

No word on how much the Savior Bud might cost, but the device’s designers imagine it will be cheap enough for use in drinking water-starved African countries.
