The Drinkable Book

Concept design for Water is Life

Chemist: Dr Theresa Dankovich
Biochemical Engineer: Corinne Clinch

Chief Creative Officer: Matt Eastwood
Executive Creative Director: Menno Kluin
Group Creative Director: Andrew McKechnie
Head of Design: Juan Carlos Pagan
Associate Creative Director: Sam Shepherd
Associate Creative Director: Frank Cartagena
Senior Designer: Brian Gartside
Designer: Aaron Stephenson

The Drinkable Book is a life saving tool that filters water and teaches proper sanitation & hygiene to those in the developing world. 

Each book is printed on technologically advanced filter paper, capable of killing deadly waterborne diseases. And each page is coated with silver nanoparticles, whose ions actively kill diseases like cholera, typhoid and E. coli. 

Once water is passed through the filter, bacteria count is reduced by over 99.99%, making the filtered water comparable to tap water in the United States of America.

The paper costs only pennies to produce, making it by far the cheapest option on the market. Each filter is capable of giving someone up to 30 days worth of clean water. And each book is capable of providing someone with clean water for up to 4 years.

*dramatic soap opera music plays in the distance*



Two households, both alike in genocide
In fair Gallifrey, where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life

"Sherlock has turned actor Benedict Cumberbatch into a star, but for Mark Gatiss, the enduring appeal of the Sherlock Holmes stories comes from the fact that everybody sees the detective through Dr. Watson’s eyes.

[…]

'Martin Freeman, other than being an astonishingly good actor, is the heart and soul of the show,' he said."

Oh my GOD, Owen.

It entertains me that their organization was not even remotely secret. I imagine the locals all rolling their eyes whenever the team runs past, because it’s like when your kids are playing spy games and they’re being ‘sneaky’ and you have to pretend you can’t see them. 

Whenever something really weird happens you just wander down to the docks, position yourself in front of a hidden camera, and sigh loudly. “Oh my, I sure hope that freaky alien-looking thing doesn’t eat my family. Boy, I wish there were someone around who could take care of that for me.

And then you piss off and get lunch while they handle it, so you can avoid getting roofied. 

And then you remember this little gem

“Excuse me… Have you seen a blowfish driving a sports car?”

*points*”Bloody Torchwood!”

These are “spurious correlations" (created by Tyler Vigen) paired with a comic (by XKCD).

Here’s the cool thing: Vigen points out that when we laugh at these correlations we are actually acting like scientists. He explains it better than I can in this video.
