France-based company Eole Water has developed a wind turbine that can condense water in the air and turn it into safe drinkable water. The WMS1000 has been designed to produce water without any external power source, so wind is the only energy that is used.

Thanks to its technical expertise and its high quality components, the WMS1000 wind turbine allows people living in remote areas to benefit from access to safe water for a period of twenty years. The device is capable of producing up to 1,200 liters of water a day.

The collected water is filtered to World Health Organization drinking standards and can be obtained from a tap at the base of the machine. You can check out the video demonstration below:
