Water out of thin air: California couple's device wins $1.5M

2018-10-26 20:31
A California couple built a machine that creates cheap, clean water out of thin air. David Hertz and Laura Doss-Hertz then entered it in the XPrize For Water Abundance competition. The couple and their partner won the $1.5 million prize on Oct. 24. They used shipping containers, wood chips, and other cheap supplies to draw water from the air. The machine produces as much as 528 gallons of water a day for no more than 2 cents a quart.
