Fontus Self-Filling Bottle creates water out of thin air and this is no magic but science. There is water in the air around us at every moment. While this may not seem very significant if you live in a water-rich area, this untapped resource could benefit everyone from athletes on the go to people living in arid areas of the world.It works by collecting moisture from humid air and condensing it into safe drinking water. It is powered by solar cells, and is capable of harvesting up to 0.5 litres of water in one hour’s time, provided the climatic conditions are conducive. After more than 30 experiments, the creator Kristof Retezar finally achieved a constant drop-flow of one drop of condensed water per minute and after developing a functioning inner system, designed a compact and practical hull which can be easily attached to a bicycle, integrates the water bottle and can be comfortably handled. The device can be attached to your bicycle, allowing you to venture to areas where water supply is scarce creating a convenient sport accessory. With more than 2 billion people in more than 40 countries living in regions with water scarcity,this simple device is a wonderful way to offer them some relief.
