A tribute to water. Designed in Montreal, Aquaovo’s Ovopur uses age-old principals to clean and restore tap water to crystal clear quality in the greenest possible way…
Read here about how Ovopur’s shape helps it put gravity and circulation to use, imitating nature’s filtration of water. Everything about the system is aesthetically pleasing: from the egg-shaped ceramic reservoir to the reuseable glass filter. This water filter could definitely find a place in our homes, as it’s much greener than bottled water or other filtration systems, it’s cost-effective over time ($0.07 per liter), and it is just plain beautiful.

In recent days, talk show hosts who really should know better have been touting a peculiar invention known as the water kit. An engineer has claimed to have found a way to use water as a fuel that can run cars.

He claims to have done this by splitting the oxygen and hydrogen molecules in water, a feat which, if real, would represent one of the greatest breakthroughs in the history of science. However, we must not forget that water is not a fuel and the fact that the matter is being debated and hyped up without proper scientific investigation, displays our profound scientific illiteracy and the media’s irresponsible response to this claim.

Works of industrial designer Tokujin Yoshioka are quintessentially modern and sculpturistic in nature and the the “Waterfall” Table is no different.
Having the distinction of being the world’s largest optical glass table, “Waterfall” once again solidifies Yoshioka position as one the most critically acclaimed Asian designers. Commissioned by a private gallery in Tokyo, “Waterfall” measures a whopping 4.5 meters and will be seen at the ‘Spectrum’ exhibition at Beyondmuseum in Seoul, Korea. Далее
It’s not the newest hair-loss solution for men. But it is cool photography.
In a recent series of photos called Water Wigs, L.A. photographer Tim Tadder captures photos of bald men getting pounded with water balloons on the head. The water flowing around their shiny jugs looks like their missing hair might if they were driving with their heads out the window.
“I got tired of repeating the same thing all the time,” says Tadder, a successful commercial photographer who has become known for his edgy ads for companies such a Gatorade and Adidas. “I wanted to find a visual concept that I’d never seen before.” Далее
How far does one have to descend to reach the Dead Sea? About 400 meters below sea level. How deep is this salty lake? Almost the same (in the northern section). Fascinating? Absolutely! Every detail about the Dead Sea is fascinating.
Here are a few more facts: The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth in any land mass (417 meters below sea level, to be exact). The quantity of water that evaporates from it is greater than that which flows into it, such that this body of water has the highest concentration of salt in the world (340 grams per liter of water).
