The Watree : An Upside Down Umbrella That Collects Rainwater

Water shortage is already a worldwide threatening problem. This is even a bigger threat than the sky rocketing prices of gas. To address this problem the world is currently facing today, Australian designer Chris Buerckner has designed a water harvesting gadget called the Watree. It is placed in open grounds just like a big shelter and protection from rain. This will not only keep the people dry during the rainy day but will also collects the rainwater, placed it in a tank, and pump it back during summer for use. I find it as the perfect answer for the present water shortage problem that we are facing.
