SFU PROFESSOR CREATES WATER FROM THIN AIR
SFU Mechatronics Professor and Canada Research Chair, Majid Bahrami has created a machine that turns air into water. Unlike air conditioners—which can also similarly create condensation—the prototype can create water under any weather conditions. The prototype works by enhancing the humidity in the air, and it can create between 19 to 40 liters a day.
