Found this on my local news
thought it was interesting how this new machine removes water from the air and makes it completly drinkable

Something like this has a lot of posibilitys
The water is comparable to distilled water

I dont think it will replace a water well..but if your well has a lot of minerals like we have in South Texas
It would make your morning coffee taste better

Stay Hydrated out there !! Got the video working

I wonder what would happen if every one had one of these. Im not scientist but it would seem like it would suck the air dry. I want one. They are expensive, the cheap ones are $1000+ but i guess thats a small price to pay for a life times worth of water for free.

Neat. But dehumidifiers have been around for a long time.

can someone explain to me how is this machine new in any way?

last time i checked atmospheric water generators have been around for a while

expensive, but they have.

While this man deserves to be employed with NASA.........(why did'nt I think of that)

The only problem I have is the electric plug. I think I needs a solar option.....You will be paying "the man," a fortune in electrical costs.....But I guess water in a drought is priceless.




Well done guy.

Star for you.

I was just goimg to say it seems like basically a dehumidifier with a water spout on it. But, nonetheless, a useful invention for people in areas with extreme heat like Texas.

I dont think I would want to drink the runoff from a dehumidifier

This machine makes 5 to 7 gallons of pure water a day

Should not be to hard to convert to solar or wind generated power

An atmospheric water generator is a glorified dehumidifier.
The production rate depends on the relative humidity where the device is operated.

Yup.. would be more usefull here in Far North Queensland Australia. During summer we get relative humidity in the high 80's!...

and yes.. my dehumidifier produces a **** load of water during those months... in fact its self evapourating system wont even work in those months so i have to vent the waste water via a pipe out of the back which i made myself...... (about 2 years ago now!)

HANG ABOUT?!?!?!?!

I THINK HE JUST STOLE MY INVENTION!!!!!! lol


If I treat that water collected from the back of my dehumidifier im pretty sure i would be able to drink that at the same time as producing a drier climate indoors! DOUBLE WHAMMY!

Could someone please tell me WHY in gods name we arent sending
tons and tons of this kind of tech to SEVERLY dehydrated areas and
droughtstriken countries like somalia??

Its beyond my comprehension to WHY we just CANT give them
desalination devices and such....

And dont go "Balance" on me...

Children are DYING for petes sake...

Why not 'pump' up water from below ground with sound or
pressure waves if beamed and concentrated enough.

Another way would be a rain maker and a catch basin.

Fresh water production has two basic requirements, moisture and a good power source.

His machine makes 5 to 7 gallons of water a day, in not so arid Austin Texas, hardly a drought savior. Desalination plants are huge and expensive, I saw the one in Tampa FL on TV and though a nice tech, its cost per gallon is triple the cost of water purification processes for bottled water you buy to drink, imagine using that water to bath or flush down the toilet.

There's no mystery that water can be condensed from the air, basic survival enthusiast's know a simple sheet of plastic and a cup can do that without electricity, Dual Survival did it with a metal can, a copper tube and a fire from sea water at a 1-cup per hour rate. Dry tropical forests 'drink from the air', like in the areas around Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where it only rains in February. Lush rich forests without rain most of the year. OK, the forests don't actually drink from the air, but the air is very moist there.

Willie Nelson bought several but I dont think he drinks much water


If you were to use the runoff from a dehumidifier the machine would have to be steralized and sealed ..which looks like what he is doing..Air in and out would have to be filtered

.something we take for granted here...water to drink..
They would have to be solar powered but that should be no problem
At least they would have water to drink..

As you said..Taken for granted...
I pump my own water from like 90m in the ground...
Pure, Fresh water..

We have humidifiers, desalinationdevices, solarpower, windpower and whatnot...

They have nothing...

wht th fK is wrong with the govmts...

Sure its ok for me to leave the comfort i have to aid these ppl, and TRUST me..
I have been thinking about it ALOOOT!!...
But the gmts around the world, do!!NOTHING!! in my eyes...

Give me a GLOBAL HUMANITARY POLITICAL PARTY and ill put my vote...

Hell, you could even throw me a and Planet Emperor like dictator, as long
as hes up for the task to TAKE CARE of it ppl,
NOT MILK IT FOR TAX DOLLARS....

Obama, Reinfeld, Harper, Rassmusen, Sarkozy....

All of them are LIARS....

Must be a slow news day. My catrs have beening drinking the water from my basement dehumidifier for over 15 years now. In fact they like it better than what comes from the tap. They will pass up the water bowl out side to go into the basement to the dehumidifier to get a drink.

A gallon of water only cost 4 cents in electrical charges! Power it with a solar panel and this is GENIUS!!

While I can see the humanitarian aspects of your thoughs. Look at things from a different view.

The population of Somolia produces nothing. Whether it's because the country has no natural resources or the people just don't have any work ethics.
Aid organizations have been there for decades and what has been the result?

IMO If the world gave every Somoli food and water for each and every day all the world would get in return is more Somoli's

not really.

A drought is caused by lack of humidity in the air, resulting in limited to zero rainfall.. (rainfall is water 'from the air').

This invention relies on humidity.

low humidity = low production or no production from your machine.
