Solar And Wind Powered Design Could Allow Plants To Survive In Desert

Korean designers Sang-Wook Park, Lee Sin-Jeong, Lee Ho-Young and Jo Hyeon-Ju have designed the “Water Vapor”, a solar and wind-powered design which converts air in to vapour by causing temperature differences through a vortex tube. In the designers' own words, 'the purpose is to create an environment where plants can live with soil moisture and water provided.'

The vapours produced by Water Vapor provide sufficient water for the plants to survive, along with moisture from the soil. Out of more than 4000 participants in the ‘iida awards 2010′ competition (Incheon International Design Awards), the Water Vapor is one of the shortlisted entries.
