This futuristic public hydration station was conceptualized by Mostafa Bonakdar, a design student from that bastion of green tech innovation – Tehran, Iran. Rainwater captured on the Hydroleaf’s solar panel/rainwater capture canopy would be funneled into the station’s filtration system.

Purified rainwater could then be dispensed to the thirsty masses. The entire system is powered by the on-board, photovoltaic solar canopy. The green gadget can also multitask as a hydrating bus shelter or public seating installation.
