Compact WaterCube

Humanity has several open fronts for its future survival on earth, including the lack of clean water. The people of Ap Verheggen are working to find solutions to this problem. They design creative forms of supply for areas where water is not readily availableespecially in very hot and humid places.

WaterCube is his latest invention. A 50 cm stainless steel cube, externally coated with solar cells, which incorporates a cooling device to cool an inverted cone and thus condense the humidity of the environment to obtain drinking water.

The Watercube consumes 25 watts of power. Small solar panels on the top and sides of the cube produce 40 watts, allowing them to store excess energy in batteries for days with worse sunlight conditions.

The amount of water produced depends on weather conditions. The higher the temperature, the more water the appliance will produce.

Its goal is that many people can enjoy their own source of drinking water in the future, especially in areas affected by drought. They continue to investigate for new challenges such as the WaterDrop, the device that produces solar-powered drinking water in the desert.
