A few months ago we were approached by German students Bernadet Schmid and David Hochfilzer, working on a technical solution to provide a simple visual feedback indicating the level of hydration in your hydration system.
Read the full story on how they came about their idea and the design sketches and trials they made here in our blogpost “How Much Water Is Left In My Pack?”.
Recently, David and Bernadet sent us pictures and reported success after a 9 hour ski-hiking tour on a 11,500ft/3,500m summit in Austria:
“The flow meter worked perfectly. It was really helpful on such a long tour to know how much water you drink and how much is left in the hydration reservoir.”
Kudos to the students in Munich for their successful project! We’ll stay in touch and our developers are happy to share experiences and ideas!
