A tiny solar-powered device creates water from thin air

Scientists at MIT and the University of Berkeley have created a solar-powered water harvester that can use air humidity to produce drinking water. The device is still a prototype but it’s yielded promising results. It can produce water in extremely dry areas and is incredibly energy efficient, plus the device already works in real-world conditions. Omar Yaghi, one of the two senior authors of the paper on the new device, said in a conversation with that this was a major breakthrough in the field. One vision for the future is to have water off-grid, where you have a device at home running…
