Nevada is known for its water problems. Since over watering is one of the reasons for water wastage in our county we decided to use the capillary action to suck up excess water from the soil. The excess water later gets deposited into the Atmospheric Water Generator(AWG). The AWG uses this water to condense water vapor's around the device. At the end there will be water produced from the water that was about to be wasted. We got this design inspiration from the Nabim Desert Beetle.
