Dew bank

Bronze
2010

The onymacris unguicularis is a desert-dwelling insect that creates dewdrops using its body and then drinks them.  The "Dew bank" was inspired by this habit; the huge daily temperature range of a desert transforms moisture in the air into dewdrops, which the bank collects, providing convenience to desert residents who usually have to look hard for water.
