CATEGORY: Consume Water
WHAT: Drought in California.
WHY: Creative problem solutions to not only save water locally, but on a global scale.
HOW: Reduce the amount of water consumption individuals use on a daily basis.
So midnight, I thought I'd go into Tony Stark mode and see if I can build my MVP in a 12 hour pre-hackathon build out. Using stuff laying around the house and 12 hours straight, I finally finished the prototype. It's a work in progress, but team members will understand the concept right away. If Nebia's shower device can save 14 gallons on average, with what I've built will probably do the job using less than 3 gallons per shower, unless your a female with a lot of hair, maybe bump that up to 4-5 gallons per shower.
Unlike Nebia's fixed shower device, mine is portable and has many uses. If Nebia can raise 2.2mil on kickstarter. I know my invention won't be the $399 retail like there's, but probably less than $50 retail. It's that simple. So I hope I get to meet other like minded talented people tonight that will join my #wateravengers team!
To locate me in the crowd, I'll have my Iron Man shirt on tonight. Oh, one more thing, I recorded myself building the prototype, step by step so you will see all the individual components being made. I'll probably be editing it tonight at the event.
See you soon! Ed
