    This is just the coolest thing, finally a device that makes water from air on a large scale:

    What wonderful news for getting cost-effective water supplies to drought areas.

    Not to be a party pooper but I have three machines at home that do the same thing. Two are dehumidifiers and one is a fridge. I don’t know how this is such a great innovation.

    It’s all good! I just thought there must be something beyond dehumidifiers and fog nets for their idea to have snagged a million-dollar prize.
