Coastal communities affected by natural disasters lack affordable and reliable access to drinking water. We aim to create a portable device that captures wave energy to drive seawater desalination and provide freshwater to communities without the need for external power or materials. The portable device is composed of a pumping mechanism that brings seawater to a reverse osmosis system to generate drinking water. Additionally, the device can be assembled without assistance from a professional, resulting in user independence for gathering freshwater.
