Rainwater Harvesting (RWH) is a great idea except that the technology has not changed much in 4,000 years. It's still roof to gutters to downspouts to barrel. RainSaucers was created to update RWH by answering questions like:
What if there are no gutters, such as in much of the developing world?
What if the roof is made of asphalt and there is concern about contamination of edibles?
What if the end user has no plumbing skill and wants something simple, yet flexible?
