The 'FreshWater' Drinking Water Machine Creates Water from Thin Air

The 'FreshWater' drinking water machine works by pulling in moisture from the surrounding air in order to create potable drinking water without the need for a well or municipal source. The 'FreshWater' is the design work of Chile-based engineer Hector Pino and can be powered via battery AC power or solar energy in order to make it a versatile piece of equipment for use almost anywhere.

The 'FreshWater' drinking water machine varies when it comes to water production depending on humidity levels, but has been reported to product about two and a half gallons in one day. This makes it suitable for small-scale use by a family, while a larger unit could potentially help to provide drinking water for an entire village in the near future.
