Powered by electricity (which can now be derived cheaply from solar and wind) this is what productivity-enhancing innovation looks like.

AQUAER water condenser and engineer Enrique Veiga explained his invention this month in a Reuters video here:

“What our machine does is to replicate the cycle of water. It uses the air in the environment, our machine’s main feature is that it can work in the desert, with temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius and above with a relative humidity of 10%, 15%.”

A small machine can produce 50-75 litres a day.

The bigger versions can produce up to 5,000 litres a day.

Our goal is to help, our goal is to reach those refugee camps where there is no water to drink and give those people the chance to drink. Our aspiration is not only to produce an effective working machine but to make it useful and above all make it useful to those people that we see in documentaries walking kilometres and kilometres to get water and dig wells.”

    a solar powered condenser will do the same thing. Ever seen water drip from your car on a hot day? Like donny d the dopy don says lets make america great again. Restore coal and the carbon boys.
    Energy will become extremely local, no need for a grid, because there is wind and sun all over the planet. Any 2 elements are a battery, some much better than others. No need for massive grids. Once we properly invest in infrastructure it is a perpetual machine. I am a cradle to grave guy, there is no need to work the way you or i did.
    You can spend it on the battle field and outfitting armies of occupation or you can build infrastructure with the same labour and resources.
    You can spend it on the wounded, both physically and mentally damaged, or you can spend it on the health and well being of all.
    You can spend it on training armies both domestic and foreign for hire occupier’s or you can spend it on the education of all.
    If you don’t see it now you never will.
