Neat Water Condenser

My idea of using dehumidifiers to provide local water having failed its first test, the idea is still viable. Here's a CNN story on some dew catchers being made in the African desert. They're made of local materials. Don't use electricity. Gather up to 25 gallons a day and are pretty neat looking.

i saw these a little twist on that a little while back.

billboards that do basically the same thing. if we can't get rid of them, may as well convert them.

That's pretty neat. Thanks for sharing.

It is great news for low rainfall areas that just atmospheric moisture as dew is available even in desert regions. I think we'll be seeing a lot more dew-catching design innovations, whole buildings catching dew, streets lined with dew catchers, maybe catching enough water combined with low-water use techniques we learned over 40 years ago using French Intensive-Biodynamic gardening so perhaps there's no need for piping water huge distances or desalinization.
