In field tests, device harvests water from desert air

There are some parts of the world that donít have access to clean, drinkable water and might also live in places that experience drought. However it looks like researchers at MIT might have the answer to that problem as they have field tested a device that has the ability to draw water from desert air.This is not necessarily a new concept and was actually proposed back in 2017, but now it looks like the researchers have field tested their concept in the dry air of Tempe, Arizona and have confirmed that it works. However this is only just the beginning as the researchers are saying that there is still a lot of work left to be done in order to scale up the process.The concept of drawing water from moisture in the air isnít new and has been explored by others in the past, but according to researchers, this is usually dependent on there being enough humidity to draw the water from. However this system is based on a new high-surface-area materials called metal-organic frameworks that can extract potable water fro
