Apparently one of the biggest dangers of being in a life raft is the risk of dehydration. This clever life raft concept solves that problem by producing enough water to keep 5 people hydrated.
Pretty neat right?
The designer of this raft, Kim Hoffman, said that she was inspired by hearing of so many stories of people dieing or getting seriously ill on life rafts as a result of dehydration, she says:
“With water all around, I thought, there’s no way this should happen,” she says. “There’s got to be a way to turn the seemingly endless amount of ocean water into viable drinking water. So, that is what I set out to do.”
