Potentially pathbreaking

Jawwad Patel, a 22-year-old engineering student from Hyderabad has designed a 3D-printed apparatus which can ‘create’ water from air. He is the first person from Asia to do so. The water apparatus produces pure drinkable water with the the help of computerised sensor interface with UV filter. In an hour, the device can extract nearly 1.8 litres of water from air.


An innovation that will help

The device called ‘Dewdrop’, uses moisture from the air to generate water. Jawwad has been inquisitive about technology since the age of 10. He won many competitions in the field of electronics and robotics during his years in school and college. Earlier, he had created a smart helmet, which does not let a person drive if he/she is drunk. Jawwad has been nominated for the National Youth Award 2015-16 and Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Excellence Award 2016.


The Logical Indian applauds the invention made by the 22-year-old. Given the water shortages in India, innovations like these can go a long way in overcoming the challenge.
