Well, a 22-yr old Indian engineering student, Jawwad Patel has invented a device and named it ‘Dewdrop’ which converts atmospheric moisture into potable drinking water. It is just a bottle which just fills and refills itself on its own.

Dewdrop sucks air using a fan, filters dust, condenses moisture using Thomson and Peltier effect, mineralizes water and stores it for drinking. It is a 3D printed device.Dewdrop weighs about 900g which makes it easier to carry anywhere one goes. The device is powered by a 12V 6000 mAh Li-ion battery.

It can generate about 1.86l/hr of potable drinking water. Jawwad says it can generate at least 1.2l/hr in desert-like areas. He has also devised the interface to control the operation of the device which includes sensors which detect humidity, temperature and other factors.

Jawwad is working on the next version of the product in which he is planning to incorporate a solar cell to power it and also provides the user the choice of hot or cold water.
