WaterDrop Drinking Water

Solar researcher Ap Verheggen WaterDrop has unveiled his latest project, “WaterDrop”. This is basically a handheld solar-powered condensation device that produces cool drinking water. “If temperatures rise, the air contains more water. Normally, higher temperatures also mean more sunshine. So, why not focus on harvesting water out of the air, powered only by renewable solar energy? In this way drinking water and water for agriculture become available in most dry parts of the planet,” said Verheggen. In other words, photovoltaic modules on the exterior absorb solar energy during the day, which is then used to cool the air to produce condensation and power a fan to create airflow. The resulting water drops are collected in a small cistern. Click here to view the first image in this week’s funny work pictures gallery.
