Now you can safely drink out of the toilet bowl! Not that you'd want to, point is, this system filters even the tiniest bacteria and viruses. The new British engineered water bottle could be a lifesaver in a disaster zone. LifeSaver Systems new filtration system can filter undrinkable pond scum into crystal clear water in a mater of seconds. This breakthrough in portable water filtration will allow solders, rescue workers, and aid organizations to quickly and effectively treat water on-scene. Conventional treatment solutions will only stop bacteria measuring more than 200 nanometres, but viruses are less than 25 nanometres long.

"The Life Saver bottle can clean up any water - including toilet water with faecal matter - because the filter keeps out anything longer than 15 nanometres, which means that viruses can be filtered out without the use of chemicals," NRX said. "The filter in the bottle can distill an amazing 1,000 gallons or 1,500 gallons of water without changing the filter."
