Project Overview


in most systems of communication, information is linked by a server to different devices making a server the center of communication that means anything that happens to a server affects the whole communication network. what if we want to connect several devices to a network without a master, I propose a system that i call 'WiNex' where devices connect directly to each other without any central machine in the network. the theory here is devices connect to the nearest device, if it needs to connect to a device beyond it's range, the device nearer to it just receives and forwards information in transit. here, one person in one end of a network can communicate with another in the other end through devices between them

More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, 99 percent, occur in the developing world. Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours. 780 million people lack access to an improved water source; approximately one in nine people. "[The water and sanitation] crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns. I think it's expensive to have a water cleaning system for every one but it's cheaper for every one to have a water cleaning system. Imagine a world where safe water is as cheap as sunshine, we have reached an age where we have the technology to harness the energy from the sun, and make it useful for our daily lives, this time we want to apply it in water for we know very well that our past is from water, and our future is in water. No one has ever claimed independence from water. Since it's part of us in all aspects, we are obliged to make it safe in order to be accepted by our systems. How can that be achieved?.... I have an idea. By using a portable solar water distillation system in every home where there is no access to clean water and yet there is abundant sunshine. that system employs concave or multiple plane mirrors concentrating sunlight to a boiler where water is vaporized which is then condensed in a storage container where pure water is stored. by that method, water can be purified to a highest percentage of purity. that system can also work as a desalination system in places with salty water or contaminated water.
