Terry LeBleu from Granite Shoals, Texas, has developed a high-tech machine that makes drinkable water out of thin air, literally. It’s called the “Drought Master” and works on the concept of sucking in moisture-laden air, condensing it, and then collecting the resulting liquid – producing distilled water of sorts.

Local celebrity Willy Nelson has bought 50 Drought Master machines so far, and LeFleur is currently working on another one for his tour bus. Drought Master comes in 27 different styles and costs between $499 amd $519. Kind of steep, but I’m thinking it’s worth it in the long run.

All you have to do is plug the Drought Master into an electric outlet and it will take care of the rest. According to its inventor, the machine can produce between 5 to 7 gallons of drinkable water a day, at just 4 cents of electricity cost per gallon.
