(ANTIMEDIA) A genius yet very simple way to produce healthy, bacteria-free water.
Italian designer Gabriele Diamanti (@GabDiamanti) has invented Eliodomestico, an eco-distiller running on solar power, to provide safe drinking-water for people in developing countries: a very simple way to produce healthy, bacteria-free water. Eliodomestico is an open source project.
This ingenious distiller was the winner at Core77 Design Award 2012 – social impact category and finalist at the Prix Émile Hermès 2011 competition. For more info and to donate to this project, click here.
