Technology and self-filling canteens

Post by Al_HikesAZ » Dec 04 2012 6:48 am

Ain't technology wonderful. :y: These kids watched a desert beetle collect water and are developing a new idea. Water from air. Probably won't see these in my lifetime. http://kitup.military.com/2012/12/self- ... teens.html
". . . we have developed a proof of concept and [are] currently creating our first fully functional prototype. We think our first prototype will collect anywhere from half a liter of water to three liters per hour depending on local environments.”

He goes on to explain, “We take the ambiant air from the environment. So you can put this in your backyard per say, and what it would do is it would take the air in your backyard and start pushing it through our device and from this the materials will actually collect the condensation, or the moisture, from the air due to the relative humidity that naturally occurs in the air everywhere.”
Anybody can make a hike harder. The real skill comes in making the hike easier.

What do you expect from HMFICs with names like "Swingin' Dick" and "Slim". And that is probably after the grammar checker corrected there first draft. :) I also like "per say" instead of per se.

I have a device in my basement that does that. However, it weighs a ton and uses a :pk: load of electricity.

But this is meant to do it in a dry desert environment, not a hot, humid NJ basement. I lived in Toms River, I remember those dehumidifiers.

I really enjoyed seeing that for the first time. It sure beats the way that area used to look. :)

On the original topic, I picture a huge array of trained desert beetles, trained to sacrifice their hard-earned water on demand.
