The Atmospheric Water Collector is Perfect for Amateur Survivalists

There still is no cure for dying of boredom, but there may soon be one for dying of thirst in the form of the Atmospheric Water Collector. This conceptual device was created by Toronto-based designer Thomas Row. Row's device is a small water collector that fits over the top of a normal plastic bottle. The water collector comes with an indicator that lets you know whether or not the air is moist enough to gather water.

The Atmospheric Water Collector was meant for use in the Nambian desert, a place where heat needs no introduction. The initial prototype failed, but Row suspects that it was merely because of the low-grade technology he had to work with. More expensive and sophisticated materials should make the water collector work, which is good news for would-be survivalists.
