Amazing WaterCube invention can create up to 100 gallons of water a day out of thin air
Say goodbye to your water bills.
A seriously impressive piece of technology grabbed a lot of attention at this year's CES trade show convention in Las Vegas, Genesis Systems’ WaterCube. It’s a home and office appliance that’s about the size of an A/C unit and can produce up to 100 gallons of water daily from thin air. That’s the amount of water used by a typical family of 4.
The amount of water it can produce depends on the humidity levels, but Genesis Systems says it can even create water in dry environments.
Much like solar panels provide energy independence, this does the same for water.
"Our first mission is to sustainably solve global water scarcity," said David Stuckenberg, who founded Genesis with his wife, Shannon, told Techxplore. "Once you have this plugged into your house...you can turn yourself off (from) the city water."
"One of the challenges that we're facing, in terms of making humanity sustainable, is the stuff we need for life," he said, according to Techxplore. "Next to air, water is the most important thing."
The WC-100 WaterCube stands more than 3 feet tall, weighs close to 600 pounds and will cost around $20,000 to pre-order. So, even though you may not have a water bill anymore, you will have a pretty expensive monthly payment plan on a WaterCube for a few years.
But once it’s paid off, your water is free as long as you own the appliance.
Genesis Systems believes that the WaterCube creates “an infinite water source” that is “democratizing the water supply.”
