After the introduction of Source and WaterCube, the attempts to produce water out of thin air continue with WaterSeer; a new turbine that condenses water from air and keeps it clean and cool with the help of an underground reservoir.
“WaterSeer is working to help people get clean water right where they live,” the company says on its crowdfunding campaign on indiegogo. “WaterSeer condenses pure water from the air without power or chemicals. It is green, sustainable, simple, low-maintenance, easily deployed and scalable for any community.”
Early adopters can pre-order WaterSeer for USD $134.
The idea was developed by Nancy Curtis and Don Zacherl in the United States and a prototype was tested at UC Berkeley Gill Tract Community Farm in April 2016.
“Results were excellent; three of the four models tested exceeded water production goals,” the company says. “We have run calculations based on the field test data that show that WaterSeer will generate as much as 11 gallons of pure water a day under the Semi-arid conditions in the San Francisco Bay area.”
Similar to any reservoir, the water collected should be pumped up to help the process continue. The device has a filter to keep debris and insects from falling into the water.
