A new invention that is already being tested in some desert areas is able to extract clean drinking water from the air using a wind turbine. A company called Eole Water has implemented this wonderful invention in areas of the Abu Dhabi desert.

Tests on a ground-mounted prototype of the water making system has shown that the device is capable of producing up to 1,000 liters of clean drinking water on a daily basis. The tests just began in October in Mussafah, on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi, but the results have inspired people all over the world.

The Eole Water wind turbine is also fully self sufficient, utilizing both wind and solar energy to power itself.

This is actually not the only invention of its kind, a number of new inventions to recently break news have similar technology, which enables devices to extract condensation from the air and convert it into drinking water. One device, named NJORD after a sea god of Norse mythology is actually handheld, and looks like a simple plastic container.
