Researchers have developed a groundbreaking system that uses the sun’s energy to harvest drinkable water from the air, even in dry regions.

A team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) demonstrated how the device uses solar energy to extract moisture from the air before condensing it on a collection plate.

They said the system could be a practical water source for remote regions with limited access to water and electricity.
