Progress continues in the goal to provide greater water supplies for desert dweller. Below are snippets from an article linked below about a unique water harvesting method from desert air.

While there are numerous methods for collecting water from the air, many require power or parts that need to be replaced; what professor Omar Yaghi has developed needs neither.

“There is nothing like this,” Yaghi explained in a Berkeley news release. “It operates at ambient temperature with ambient sunlight, and with no additional energy input you can collect water in the desert.”
