The Innovate or Die contest for the most creative, most energy saving, and best design of a bicycle-powered energy saving invention, is over. And the Grand Prize, annound this morning, goes to the invention pictured above. The Aquaduct, the entry from a team of five California designers, addresses the needs of 1.1 million people in the world who don't have access to clean drinking water.
This is how the Aquaduct works. I think you'll agree that the Aquaduct is an extremely novel and important invention.
The 2007 Innovate or Die pedal-powered machine contest was presented by Google, Specialized Bicycles, and Goodby, Silverstein & Partners . The contest winners will each receive a Specialized World Bike and, as a group, a check for $5000.
