The Element Four WaterMill

The WaterMill is a new device from Element Four that promises to magicallty pull water right out of thin air sans top hat. The device which uses roughly the same amount of energy as three light bulbs works by drawing air through filters to remove dust and particles, then cooling it to just below the temperature at which dew forms. The condensed water is passed through a self-sterilizing chamber that uses microbe-busting UV light to eradicate any disease causing bacteria.

Our current water obtaining situation is putting strain on our economy and our environment to the tune of about $11Billion and 1.5Million Barrels of oil a year in the U.S. alone. While the new device is currently priced at $1,200, as prices come down it could help to alleviate this situation and become a staple of the modern kitchen in the same fashion as a microwave has become common place in today's homes.
