Water from air. Easily the coolest gadget at the show, the Air2Water Revolution coolers are designed to literally pull drinking water out of your home's indoor air. While the technical details of how they work are proprietary, the company's owner explained that once the water is pulled from the air, it's run through three different types of filters, sanitized by a UV light, then stored in a stainless steel (not plastic) tank until you need it. Depending on the temperature and humidity in your home, they'll produce up to seven gallons of drinking water per day.
ScienceDaily (June 5, 2009) — Not a plant to be seen, the desert ground is too dry. But the air contains water, and research scientists have found a way of obtaining drinking water from air humidity. The system is based completely on renewable energy and is therefore autonomous.
Cracks permeate the dried-out desert ground, the landscape bears testimony to the lack of water. But even here, where there are no lakes, rivers or groundwater, considerable quantities of water are stored in the air. In the Negev desert in Israel, for example, annual average relative air humidity is 64 percent – in every cubic meter of air there are 11.5 milliliters of water.
