A Well That Creates Drinking Water From Thin Air

One in nine people worldwide lives without access to clean drinking water, but the WaterSeer seeks to solve that problem by creating water - out of thin air. The wind-powered device uses condensation to extract moisture from the air and collect up to 11 gallons of potable water every day. After a fan pushes air below ground, a metal chamber cools it and then water particles collect in a reservoir.

WaterSeer is a non-profit initiative and they have now partnered with the National Peace Corps Association. It is currently in the industrial design phase, with lab trials and outdoor trials scheduled for later this year.
