ENTRY DESCRIPTION

The Water-O-Power is a quadracopter made of four solar panels - used to charge the machine's battery - and tubes that capture rainwater and humid air and transform them into cleaner water.

The Water-O-Power is a quadracopter made of four solar panels, tubes, tanks and a battery. The machine works well in various conditions. On sunny days, the solar panels use the sun's energy and transform it into electricity, which is send to the battery through a thin protected unit located on the upper side of the machine. On rainy days, the solar panels' thin layers of graphene transform raindrops into energy and send it to the battery too. By the way, the battery is equipped of a little emergency unit, where the extra energy is stocked, in case the machine run lows. There are big tubes surrounding the solar panels. The first tube has a filter on top of it to capture the rainwater that after will go through the tube, a cooling filter and finally to a water tank. If it's a sunny day, the second tube is better to use - but both tubes can be used together. The second tube, has little holes (filters) that can be closed and opened if there's too much air in the machine by example. The holes are in charge of accumulating humid air. The air goes through the hole first, after through a cooling filter, then through the hydrophobic surfaces - that will change the air into drops of water - and to a water tank. CO2 and other bad stuff that can be found in the air are sent to another unit, located on the lower side of the machine, then evacuated outside. The tanks also have evacuation holes, but for the water. The Water-O-Power also has a command system so the person can chose when and where (GPS) the machine will work, which tube(s) will be used, if the LED lights will be used, etc.
