Recycled Refreshment with Raincatch Raincoat

It may not make much of a fashion statement, but Raincatch can keep you dry yet hydrated at the same time. It's a water purification raincoat invented by Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble of the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. (Watch the video below!)

Filled with tubes and charcoal filters, the curious coat catches rainwater in the collar. A hidden chemical purifying system magically makes the water more drinkable, then it's dispersed throughout the coat into small pockets. When you're feeling thirsty, just grab a tube and take a gulp.
