You'd be hard-pressed to find a more sustainable hydration strategy than what the NJORD Portable Water Creator proposes. Worthy indeed of submission in the 2011 Electrolux Design Lab competition, this innovative product makes something out nothing.

In warm climates, humid days come and go, but this fascinating flask makes the most of that icky wet air. You simply press the button found on the cap of this hi-tech canteen and it works to convert atmospheric moisture into a pure potable beverage within.

Creator Reymin De Leon estimates that his invention could churn out about one liter of H2O if the vessel sits in plus 50% humidity for around two hours. For optimally efficient condensing, the NJORD Portable Water Creator makes use of an internal thermostat and a malleable polar polymer to achieve the best in-bottle conditions.
