If the world runs low on water, we all may be forced to make our bodies consume less water.
How would that work? A Japanese company has the answer.
The Japanese design studio Takram was asked to design a water bottle for people to use after a hypothetical future environmental disaster. Takram, imagining what a world would be like with rising sea levels and radioactive disasters, thought that we probably wouldn’t be carrying around water bottles. Instead, they designed an entirely new organ system, to be implanted in the body, that would mean we used less water in the first place.
Its solution, called the Hydrolemic System, involves both harvesting more moisture from the air than our current un-modified bodies are capable of, and also doing more to retain the water we have. The company imagines that system would require us to drink 0.1 cups of water a day.
