Scientists develop self-filling bottle that sucks water from the air

Self-filling water bottle

Due to scarce rainfall in Namib Desert, the Namib Desert Beetle has tendency to suck water from air. Inspired from this beetle ‘NBD Nano’ has created a water bottle prototype that works on the same phenomenon, the bottle sucks water from air and fills itself. Deckard Sorensen is one of the founders of NBD Nano and has a major contribution in developing this tech, he visualises the bottle to be available for masses by 2014.
