AERO is a water harvester created for urban gardening communities. With polymer-coated cotton, AERO passively absorbs water molecules from the air. Twisting motions squeeze out the water, which gardeners can access at any time and share. Powered by its own solar energy, AERO is able to produce up to 200 liters of water daily. To reduce water waste, AERO is connected to smart-dosing feeders, which automatically deliver the right amount of water to plants. AERO allows users to create individual watering plans and always be aware of how much water is available.
