In an example of how innovation can literally quench the thirst of millions in parched regions of the world, a team of engineers has developed a wind-powered device, called Water Seer, which can extract about 11 gallons of clean, potable drinking water a day.

The system is basically a low-tech, cheap atmospheric water condenser, which is planted six feet under the ground with a chamber, where hot air makes contact with spinning blades and condenses to give pure water, writes Nature World News.

Water Seer offers an eco-friendly alternative to traditional condensation systems that are expensive to operate, require fossil fuels and adversely impact the environment with carbon emissions, notes Inhabitat.
