The picture is below the text, though I'm certain you already saw that.

What's it do? Well, it makes water from sunshine of course!

Totally willing to share (as-in for free...), but a man's gotta have a tractor (if he wishes to dig a driveway/foundation/pond in human time-scales on a crushed Gneiss mountain....)

If you've got the time, have a look at this: Crowdfund Thing

Elsewise, it's a Solar-Powered Wet-Desiccant Atmospheric Water Generator (SPWDAWG - Sup dawg!!)

How much water does it make? Ohhhh!!! Heheheheh..... This type of AWG works better in low humidity, and it isn't concerned with the dew point.

20 grand to poke a hole in my mountain, and hope there's water at the bottom of it. If I had 20 grand, I'd buy some Portland :( So! I built this.

Incidentally, it also makes cool, dry air as a byproduct... would be a nice addition to a greenhouse donchathink??

Just Build The Damn Thing!
