In the developed world, getting clean water that you can drink is as easy as turning on the faucet in your house. In developing nations, getting clean drinking water can be very hard and at times impossible. Without clean water to drink and cook with people are at risk of dehydration and death. A new device is on Indiegogo called the Desolenator that can make salt water or contaminated water drinkable by boiling it.
The big feature of this device is that it doesn’t require any external electricity; it uses solar power for its process. The Desolenator has no moving parts making it very robust and giving it a lifespan of 20 years. Some similar solutions on the market today have consumables like filters that have to be replaced.
