Drinkable Water for Everyone


www.ted.com

Too much of the world lacks access to clean drinking water. Engineer Michael Pritchard did something about it -- inventing the portable Lifesaver filter, which can make the most revolting water drinkable in seconds. An amazing demo from TEDGlobal 2009.

I'm sure other videos have been posted about unclean water turned into drinking water. Hopefully more people find out about this so we can start helping families around the world with clean drinking water. Great Video by a man trying to change the world. We need more people like him in the world. Link is below.

That's brilliant and as soon as I get a job again, I'm going to buy one.


They cost a pretty penny, but I think in an emergency situation, $100 would be well spent if you had clean water to drink.

My Katadyn pocket filter has been doing this for a while.

Is this solution just cheaper, the technology is basically the same?


(PS - Can't view the video right now)

yeah I agree with you it costs some money and it would be a good thing to have in emergency cases.

Also, you can use it on hiking or camping trips to drink and cook with so it could be good to have if your an outdoors person

I'm not sure if it is the same technology but this is the question I have. With all the money we spend on aid and everything else, why can't we use the money to buy these devices for people that don't have the clean drinking water? Obviously, the technology is out there to help people.

How would you know weather the thing hadn't developed a very small hole - or an imperfection in the manufacture process was not %100 perfect... Something like that could get false confidence in water that you could of boiled with a little effort.

Good idea though, always good to see a person stand by their product.

The same reason we can't provide complete healthcare coverage for our own citizens.

There isn't enough money to fix everything here, let alone there.
