Eliodomestico is a new concept of a solar seawater distiller earmarked mainly for developing countries. Italian designer Gabriele Diamanti (@GabDiamanti) is the man behind this game changing invention. The invention can transform salty water from the sea to drinking water by using only direct sunlight. No electricity, no filters nor moving parts.This means there is no need for maintenance hence no operating costs involved. All one has to do is fill it with salty sea water and get about your day. At the end it delivers 5 litres of drinking water. A genius yet very simple way to produce healthy, bacteria-free water. It could go a long way in solving water problems in Africa.
