The outer cover is in pyramidal shape:

The internal side of the outer cover is a glass layer to
intensify water evaporation.

In the sides of this cover there are opened tubes to
collect water and these tubes are connected together
with a final tube to collect fresh water.

The cover paints in the white color to reflect sun shines.

The hive body contains a back drawer which can be used for adding water.

Inside the drawer, there is a sponge piece which plays a key role in holding
much amount of water and serves as a filter for salts.

Also, Water can be added for this hive body automatically by providing the hive
body with a small tube which can be connected with vans filled with water.

Different methods can be used to heat water inside the hive body.
1) The hive body can be made from copper or metal and with black color to be
heated fast by sun (simple method).
2) The air can be vacuumed from the hive's body to evaporate water quickly.
3) Electricity can be used to heat water inside the hive's body by using electrical
heater under the drawer.
4) Solar cells can be used to heat the hive's body.

The hive carrier is four long legs for carrying the hive.

By using this hive there is ability for controlling the amount
of produced water by increasing number of hives. Also, small
fans can be added to the outer cover for cooling the outer
cover and help in water intensifying

Moreover, more than one hive can be connected
together to collect water from many hives at the same

Also, this hive can be operated under vacuum
conditions which make the water evaporation fast.

This hive can be used in different places without
