A 75-year-old engineer has managed to make a machine capable of producing drinking water in the desert. According to its inventor, the prototype of this machine is capable of making 3000 liters of drinking water a day, even in the driest desert on our planet.
Just visualize what our ancestors would have said when seeing a device that makes water out of “nothing.” I believe Mr. Veiga would have been considered as some sort of god? Possibly the bringer of “fresh water”? It amazing how technology changes society and our lives over-all.
Its inventor, 75-year old Enrique Veiga, a refrigeration engineer from Seville, Spain managed to develop a mechanism capable of extracting moisture from the air and transform it into water. The revolutionary machine uses the same amount of electricity as a domestic washing machine to autonomously make drinking water, rainwater similar characteristics.
To obtain the present design of the machine and its maximum output, Veiga had a lot of work to do. “I started working on this device approximately twenty years ago, the first registered patent is from 1995, when a drought was crossing Spain and made me work on this.”
With this incredible invention, people would be able to overcome the lack of water in extreme circumstances such as those in immigrant camps and natural disasters, having drinkable water free of pollutants. It can also be used to make water supply for small domestic consumption. It is another revolutionary idea that can definitely push mankind towards a better quality of life.
The government of Namibia, a country with serious problems of drought, has commissioned the production of 1,500 units from Aquaer Generators, a company in Seville that hold the patent for this incredible machine.
We hope that this device manages to solve one of the major problems on planet Earth, the lack of fresh, drinkable water, a problem that affects millions of people in all corners of the world.
It appears that humanity’s technological revolution has started, as this device with other revolutionary ideas will certainly push us into the right direction.
