Ever been in Hawaii or the South and felt like you were swimming through the hot humid air? Apparently, you were. At least, that’s my take on it considering that the Watair AirJuicer 4010 can pull up to 6 gallons of water per day from nothing but the humidity in the air.
While not really a new idea, it is an interesting development in the technology. An office style water cooler with no connection to an existing water source, which according to CoolHunting requires a minimum of 35% humidity to harvest water from air. Now that’s pretty cool.
I’m picturing a little hydration station powered by solar panels quietly producing the single most important item for survival. Nice.
The unit costs $1,500, but considering that:
- “Americans spend about $100 billion a year on bottled water.”
- Bottled water is basically evil
- The Wataire unit produces 6 stage filtrated water for 20 cents of electricity per gallon
- The AirJuicer takes plastic bottles out of the equation all together
- it just might be worth it.
