Zero Mass Water began a revolution in the water industry -- the ability to create drinkable water out of thin air. Their new project, Source, is able to do this by pulling moisture from the air with the help of solar energy generation. It’s helped in the restoration efforts at Puerto Rico, and founder Cody Friesen showed off the device at CES 2018.
Source is known as a “hydropanel” that can extract moisture from the air with nanomaterials. Once it gathers up the moisture, it goes through a reservoir that adds magnesium and calcium into it. All of this is operated by energy from the sunlight with solar panels on the device. A two-panel system can create up to 10 liters of drinking water per day.
