Designed by CIID students Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble. Raincatch is a rain coat that looks like a huge black garbage bag with a series of little tubes that transforms collected rain water into purified drinking water. The Raincatch collects rain and then purifies it. According to Yang's video, "the water is stored around the shoulders of the coat and in pockets around the inside of the coat." The collar of the coat captures the rain which is then passed through charcoal filters and a chemical purification system. Check out the video.
