It sounds almost too good to be true, but if this works out well enough to make a good portable water supply, I want one. Sounds like the perfect thing for any emergency kit, as well as for hikers, trekkers, cyclists, etc.

You can waste time with your friends when your chores are done.

Heck with bottles. We're in a super drought cycle that will not end in our grandchildren's lifetimes . How about self-filling reservoirs!

It's not impossible; I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home.

Listen, Tanthalas 39, hokey religions and ancient skyhoppers are no match for a good water source in your backpack, kid.

On another note, it's almost as if these scientists know the Desert Beetle's ways as if born to them...

You've got your threads all mixed up. INn he morning I want you to take yourself to Anchorhead and have your memory erased. That will be the last of it.

Vaporators? Sir, my first job was programing binary load lifters. Very similar to your vaporators in most respects.

I was looking at Atmospheric water generators and I thought "I wonder if we could rig them to solar panels and put them in poverty areas?" And then they come up with these that require no energy. We can just air drop them so that warlords can't just seize them.

I've wondered before how viable a large De-humidifier on the roof would be. Power it off solar or something. I live near the ocean so the air has some moisture in it. I guess the water would still need to be purified...

Maybe just use it for watering the garden or something.

You know who else obtained moisture from a sweaty beatle?

The beetle IS the moisture! The moisture IS the beetle!

Always wondered why they were called "vaporators"--wouldn't "ondensers" be better? If there's an answer: I'm sure someone here knows it.

I've been looking forward to this for a long time.

Bottle? I'm holding out for a complete stillsuit.

campers survival books have many methods for obtaining water in dry conditions. also for obtaining potable water with dirty water as a distillation source. stocking in some good used books is as important as having emergency food, water and other supplies on hand. be prepared.

Nice map on that webpage.
You can switch bewteen 'natural water' and 'managed water'

Notice, with managed water, every area is worse off, except da US and England...

notice.
