Robotics engineer Vita Gabriela Galindo, originally from Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico, created a robot that converts air into water, with the capacity to generate up to 20 liters of the vital liquid in one day. Her goal is to combat the current water shortage both locally and nationally.
In an interview for Newscast, Galindo explained that the mechanism made with homemade materials and some others available in hardware stores follows the principle of condensation to collect water. In addition, he assured that the vital liquid produced is suitable for human consumption:
This process uses the principle of condensation, what it does is that it simulates the process of clouds, converting air into water. It took me a week to do the project.
The engineer emphasized that her invention is “a light of hope” to attack the problem of scarcity of the vital liquid in the entity, where there are groups of people who do not have access to water:
This machine could be a light of hope for all desert areas or also in the case of Nuevo León, which is going through a drought. This water is drinkable, I consider that it is much cleaner than that found in rivers, with toxic waste and that people are ingesting.
In addition, Galindo pointed out that the model can be implemented on a larger scale capable of producing up to a thousand liters of water per day. Finally, he said he was willing to share his project with the state government and the Water and Drainage agencies, for the benefit of the population.
