    My tesis idea is to design a manual method to purify water from a place (New Delhi) that have existing water crisis using one of their resourse that is the Yamuna River. My ideal was always design something to help poor people and try to make their lifes a little bit happiness. Here are my 5 objects that I admire, Some of them have connection with my tesis, like the brita jum and the Pristine the emergency water filter sistem because both of them work with a method that purify water. The solar panel I thing is really interesting and in some way I can use it in my tesis but is really expensive. The bag I really like because is an eco-friendly design with a material made of recyclable water bottle. Also I think this product could be part of my inspirations for my tesis because I could figured how to make my project with eco-friendly material. The Smart fortwo doestn’t have any connection with my project but is a fantastion idea to help in a existing problem not just in Manhattan but in different places that exist a big car depended.
