“How can we have open windows that prevent rain from coming in?”

 

Open windows can be great for letting in air and light to brighten up a home. However, one downside is that they can’t protect buildings from the rain. So can we use our engineering mindset to fix this? So what if we were to simply add in blinds with horizontal slants? This would protect us any vertically following objects. Well, this machine is known as a louver and is used in homes around the world as a low-cost solution for internal climate control.
