Cheap Eco-Distiller Turns Seawater Into Drinking Water Using Solar Energy

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, meaning that anyone can use or improve the existing design.

Winner at Core77 Design Award 2012 – social impact category. Finalist at the Prix Émile Hermès 2011 competition.
