1. A water vapor collector assembly which consists of:
a) an optional capillary net which can transport water by capillary forces and which cannot completely block sun ray;
b) a dome which allows sun light to pass through;
c) a water conveying channel which has an outlet to collect and convey water;
d) an optional capillary mat which has an opening and which has dark color as well as which can transport water by capillary forces;
e) a floatation base which can float on water surfaces and which has two penetrating slots for a rope that each connects to two optional indented slots for a rope, a penetrating slot for a tube with a penetrating opening, and an optional indented slot for a tube;
f) and a water tube anchor which is a hollow tube with a tab in plural form at one rim;
g) a rope being able to loop around said two penetrating slots for a rope and said optional indented slots for a rope of said floatation base;
h) a tube made of flexible material being able to pass through said penetrating slot for a tube of said floatation base, then, to pass through said opening of said optional capillary mat, then, to encompass said water tube anchor, then, to mount its rim to said tab of said water tube anchor;
i) said optional capillary mat being on top of said floatation base when being used;
j) said water tube anchor being able to engage with said enlarged penetrating opening of said floatation base;
k) said water conveying channel being on top of said optional capillary mat or on the top surface of said floatation base;
l) said dome being able to engage with said floatation base with a portion of said optional capillary mat in between-when said optional capillary mat being used;
m) said dome being on top of said water conveying channel with a portion of the surface of said dome being on top of said water conveying channel;
n) said outlet of said water conveying channel being on top of said water tube anchor;
o) said optional capillary net being on top of said dome when being used.
