The Water Observers built a floating robot to address water pollution. The robot scans for, and sucks up polluted water. The water travels into a tank in the robot where it gets cleaned and separated from waste. Waste is then transported into a compartment which processes it into “something useful”. Clean water gets pumped out into water tanks and transported to villages where there is lack of access to clean water. The robot can be used in rivers / lakes or the ocean.
