Thermoelectric cooling helps bike riders pull drinking water from the air

Bike riders have a very short check list when leaving the house. Remember the helmet, the sunblock, and…. the water bottle. Thanks to industrial design student Kristof Retezár they can check that last one off the list for good.

Kristof designed the ‘Fontus,’ a thermoelectric cooling system that filters moisture from the humid air right into your water bottle. After thirty or so prototypes, Kristof was able to produce a collection rate of about a drop a minute, and in the right conditions that equals about a half-liter per hour. The device seems to be going into the final stages of invention and will soon allow riders to ride even longer.
