Thirsty? Now you can get as much pure water as you can drink, siphoned magically out of thin air by the RainCloud water generator. Basically just a fancy dehumidifier, the RainCloud condenses ambient water vapor into liquid water and then runs it through a bunch of filters to make it safe and drinkable.
I’m not entirely sure how well the RainCloud will work in, say, Nevada, or whether it’ll flood your entire house in a matter of seconds if you turn it on in Oregon. Either way, the asking price of a bit over $1000 makes it of questionable practicality unless you live on a boat or something. Supposedly, RainCloud becomes cost effective over bottled water after 20 months, but that doesn’t even include the $170 replacement filter cost.
Pssst… Just go buy a Brita or something.
