Summary

Overview

1 Billion portable rechargeable Air to Water machines rolled out in 5 years solving fresh drinking water supply forever

 

The Problem

Global Fresh Water Supply  - made abundant via Portable Rechargeable Air to Water machines - making fresh water out of the humidity in air!

Air to water machines take in normal air then extract and condense the humidity into pure liquid water.


The ultimate goal is to make 1 billion Portable Rechargeable Air to Water machines available at $100 per unit above cost to generate 100 billion dollars for XPrize Space R&D

A prototype is needed an Air/Water Machine that can make the most possible amount of water in the shortest time at the smallest wattage in an affordable rechargeable portable unit.  The winning prototype will win the $100,000 and the ability to ratify mass producing the prototype to solve fresh drinking water supplies. 

Fresh water is scarce away from rivers, dams and lakes - Air to Water machines create water out of thin air.

With the right technology clean fresh water can be abundant and freely available from thermoelectric portable Air to Water machines - condensing humidity into liquid water.

 

The Challenge Breakthrough

Inventing a prototype portable rechargeable Air/Water Machine to mass manufacture. 

Making cheap rechargeable portable Air to Water machines for 1 Billion people

When fresh water scarcity is solved the carrying capacity population of the planet increases. Hydroponics and aquaculture can flourish, food supply increases etc.

 

How to Win the Challenge

Creating a high performance, low wattage, portable, rechargeable, Air to Water machine prototype ready to be mass manufactured for a global market

The winning Air/Water machine must outperform all other competitors in water production, time taken to produce water, electrical watts used.

The Air to Water machine must meet the following criteria

*Rechargeable

*Portable

*Energy Efficient

"The Air to Water Machine Prototype must make a reasonable amount of drinking water, in a reasonable amount of time on one battery charge"

 

Duration

12 Months
