Dean Kamen is at it again, God bless him.

Next stop, the basement. Now you’re in the heart of the machine. Here’s the vapor-compression distiller. The vapor goes through this hose and comes into the turbine heat exchangers here and there’s no noise and no consumables and no activated charcoal and no chemicals and no filter and no membranes. It makes a million liters of water in a thousand days with no human intervention. The goal is to get volume up and cost down. Maybe Wal-Mart can help? Coca-Cola?

I swear, the man is the technology Willy Wonka.
