As we know, there is water scarcity in many parts of the world. There are so many researchers working to find different ways to overcome this problem. One such solution is Fontus “self-filling” water bottle.

We actually can extract water from the moisture present in the air. An Austrian designer Kristof RetezΓ‘r’s, put this theory into a water bottle. fontus-water-bottle-designboom03

This is a cool looking biking accessory, which turns air into water, when you ride. Fontus water bottle uses solar power to activate the condenser with a Peltier Element.


It’s essentially a cooler with two chambers that facilitates condensation, and takes in air as the bike moves, which is then slowed and cooled down by barriers that allows it to condense and form water, which is channelled and collected in the bottle.

This auto filling water bottle can produce 0.5 liters of water in an hour. Well… This number varies from place to place, depending on the humidity and the temperature.

Fontus water bottle may not work in urban cities because of the pollution in the air.

This is a very useful device. Hoping for many more useful and productive solutions for water scarcity.
