Breathe Under Water

The Breathe Under Water project is made to address humans' lack of ability to breathe under water. It is designed to go along the surface, just below snorkelling level, but not to go as deep as scubadiving. Furthermore, it can help people who don't know how to swim or are incapable of it. It would be far cheaper than scuba diving equipment, so more people would be able to buy it. 

The Breathe Under Water works by separating the hydrogen and the oxygen from the molecule of the water. This process is called electrolysis. The hydrogen is let go through a tube, and the oxygen mixes with stored nitrogen using a sensor that detects the amount of oxygen and nitrogen needed (it has to be 21% oxygen and 79% nitrogen). This sensor regulates all the air you breathe. There's also a security sensor, in case you are not breathing the correct amount of the components.

My product is a pajamas shirt that contains melatonin substance and because it is breathable, when you put it on it relaxes you and helps you sleep.

Sea Camelback

Vanessa Uceira

My project is a backpack that transforms sea water into fresh water through evaporation of it, I have chosen this project because there is very little fresh water in the world and a lot of salt so I have thought about being able to give it a little more use to sea water, with this I solve or at least take a small step to solve the lack of fresh water around the world.

For what is the backpack in general I have used a kind of fairly resistant fabric, to make the mechanism inside I have used a piece of red wood to simulate the heating plate, two plastic bags, one for salt water and one for fresh water, another plastic bag and wire for the funnel, a rubber tube, cords for the closure of the backpack and some handles as for the blinds.

Neck piece

Nil Campderros

This is a neck piece for the thread of the mask. It causes the threads of the mask not to touch your ears and not to hurt you. 

This already exists and its a improvement more elastic and comty. This solves a physical problem.

This contraption improves the flexibility and comfort of the one that is already created, in addition, is more comfortable.

It will be used by many people, all those people who notice pain in the ears by the strings of the mask and are already tired.

Memory-Capturing Glasses

Vanessa Uceira

These glasses are perfect for people with initial symptoms of Alzheimer because they have a camera that you turn on manually that acts as eyes. Then you transfer the videos to the computer and you can relive these experiences again. It is a therapeutic way to improve your memory and exercise it. People with Alzheimer forget everything about the family and experiences lived so this helps them to train their memory and to retain more memories of these experiences.

This camera records everything when you turn it on and then it transfers these videos to the memory card which you can plug it in the computer. Also it has a usb entrance so you can charge the glasses. In this case, I’ve used a led that represents a camera. This led works by turning on a button.  It’s very sustainable because most of it it’s made of wood.
