= The FairCap - An Open Water Filter Project

URL = http://www.faircap.org


"Imagine if you could get a portable tiny water filter that could be screwed into any plastic bottle which would allow you to safely drink any available water, from a stream, from a lake, from a water pond, that can also filter some chemicals to improve the quality of water? Imagine what it would mean for a poor family in Africa to be able to get this filter for just $1 in the future.

The FairCap project aims to reach this vision in a collaborative and participative way, using current and future technologies that allow for the crowdfunding, co-creation and fabrication of this product. We currently have a working prototype that can be produced at a cost of around 5 euros, but with the help of citizens, designers, scientists and engineers it will be possible to reduce this cost considerably in the future."
