The past couple of years has seen a movement to figure out ways clean drinking water could be provided to people. This may not seem such a big deal if people take into account that about 70 percent of the world is covered in water. However, less than 1 percent of that water is considered safe and sanitary for bathing, cleaning, and drinking for humanity. This is surely a problem that requires a lot of attention. The Inquisitr reported on the latest news pertaining to this problem, the latest being a solar-powered distiller providing clean water through desalination. The most unique — and probably the most disgusting — way to provide clean drinking water is through a machine, known as a Omniprocessor, that extracts and purifies water from poop.
No matter what the invention is, it must provide drinking water, especially with the fact that drinking water is a human necessity. People can only survive a maximum of three days without water, compared to food, which they can go up to three weeks. Therefore, it is amazing that a company was able to create an invention that people use like a restaurant straw that can be used on untreated, filthy water, yet that water will be safe for drinking once it reaches a user’s mouth.
