Clear Channel billboard converts humidity into drinking water

A billboard in the small Peruvian village of Bujama has created 15,000 litres of drinking water in six months from humidity in the air to give residents access to a highly sought after clean water supply.

The $32,600 billboard, which was co-produced by outdoor advertising company Clear Channel and researchers at the University of Engineering and Technology, transforms water using a series of condensers and filters.
