NYC’s Plus Pool

plus_pool_new_yorkEver since I saw Archie Coates speak at TedxRVA, I can’t stop thinking about his brilliant Plus Pool. He and a friend run a little design firm and started brainstorming ideas for how they could swim in the polluted East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn. They came up with a floating pool that would also filter water and return it to the river cleaner. What grabbed me was that they had no idea how this would work. They just knew it was a good idea. Time magazine did, too. They named Plus Pool one of the 25 best inventions of 2013. Archie and his team have raised $300k and are currently testing the filtration system. I’m so inspired. (And I want to swim in it someday.) plus-pool
