Did you know? By 2025, an estimated 1.8 billion people will live in areas where water scarcity is prevalent. This is concerning, but fortunately, not unsolvable. In fact, a 22-year-old Indian entrepreneur has already presented a solution.
Jawwad Patel, an engineering student, has developed an invention that converts atmospheric moisture into potable drinking water. In other words, it pulls water from the air to produce drinkable water within a short period of time.
Perhaps most notable is the fact that the device — dubbed the ‘Dewdrop ’ — was 3D-printed. Tech Story reports that the invention sucks in air using a fan, filters dust, and then condenses moisture using the Thomson and Peltier effect to produce mineralized water. The water is then stored for drinking. When the container is emptied, it begins the process once again.
