'I like' raising awareness

This is exciting for charities operating in social media, as people are likely to share things they believe in and care about. How will charities leverage the power of viral to take their digital campaigns to the next level?

Water from thin air

France’s Eole Water has created a turbine that can condense water in the air and make it safe for drinking.

Aside from the obvious environmental benefits a wind turbine offers, the company’s WMS1000 sucks in passing air that goes through a cooling compressor in the generator compartment, which then condensates passing airborne moisture. The water is then collected, filtered to World Health Organization drinking standards and delivered through a tap at the bottom of the turbine. According to Eole Water, the turbine can produce up to 1,000 liters a day.
