Reinventing the wheel


"Millions around the world, especially in rural Africa, live kilometers from a reliable source of clean water, leaving them vulnerable to cholera, dysentery, and other water-borne diseases. Water in adequate quantities is too heavy to carry. The Q Drum is a durable container designed to roll easily, and can transport seventy-five liters of clean and potable water. Rolling the water in a cylindrical container, rather than lifting and carrying it, eases the burden of bringing water to those who need it."

This project makes me wonder if students in the transport design department at Massey University might better employ their imagination on projects like this than learning how to render supercars?

Where there's muck there's brass?
