Water Vapor


Desalinating water and irrigating deserts is a costly and inefficient process. With clean water quickly becoming a global concern, there is a need for efficient water desalination.


Our atmosphere is full of water vapor, which turns into condensation in cooler temperatures.

Machine generators can harness this same technology by pulling air from the atmosphere, condensing it into water, and filtering it for impurities like metal or bacteria. All it needs is 15% humidity in the air to start pumping out its water and adding minerals so that it's drinkable.
