Your next Ford F-150, Fiesta or Expedition may include a feature that is currently making waves. The Blue Oval's mobile water innovation, dubbed On-the-Go H2O, was recently selected as a finalist in two categories of Fast Company's 2017 World Changing Ideas Awards, which honor projects, ideas, businesses and more that provide innovative answers to issues affecting people today.

Ford engineers Doug Martin and John Rollinger developed the groundbreaking technology, which sparked from the question of cars' potential as water sources. The concept involves a system collecting condensation from car air conditioning systems, filtering them, and pumping the cleaned liquid back into a faucet located inside the vehicle for consumption.

Keep an eye out for a feature on On-the-Go H2O in the April issue of Fast Company, which is out on March 27. The publication will acknowledge other finalists in the competition as well. Learn more at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington today!

In our first piece about the all-new 2017 Ford EcoSport, we touched upon the vehicle's innovative shelf that incorporates a recycled honeycomb material and design. Now, let's dig a little deeper and see why Ford's designers have deemed the shelving worthy of mention.

Although the EcoSport isn't as large as other Ford family members, such as the renowned Escape, it manages to pack plenty of power and functionality. Amongst other details, honeycomb, in particular, finds its strength in resin reinforcement that yields a remarkable strength-to-weight ratio, exemplifying the EcoSport's ability to go beyond its frame. Learn more about this impressive material in the video below:

Honeycomb's resistance to weight has been revered for years; it's been used for skis, aerospace frames and more. The EcoSport's pioneering features, like the honeycomb-inspired shelving, are sure to turn heads on the lot. Learn more at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington!
