Fog Harp

Fog Harp aims to develop a full scale model to test a promising, potentially revolutionary fog collecting technology. Inspired by natural processes and modeled specifically on the way in which mighty Sequoia trees collect water from coastal fog, known as fog drip, Fog Harp has the potential to address water scarcity problems in some of the poorest and driest countries on Earth. Incorporating vertical wires into the preexisting “screen mesh” design, Fog Harp plans to increase the efficiency of these nets so that they may be adapted to first world applications particularly on the California coast.
