While we’re not literally able to pull much out of thin air, fresh drinking water is certainly a possibility. Sound too good to be true? Zero Mass Water has created Source, a “hydropanel” that’s able to extract moisture from the air. The goal here is an awesome one: to create an alternative source of drinking water that could be used to help rural areas.

Source can be used offgrid, making it accessible to people who are living in remote areas. This technology is able to generate water with just sunlight and air. Nanomaterials are able to filter out water from the air and the hydropanel then separates the water. This acquired liquid runs through a reservoir where magnesium and calcium are added into it for consumption. This reservoir can hold 30 liters.
