To promote the Peru-based University of Engineering and Technology’s capabilities, the first-ever billboard was created that produces drinkable water from the air. In Lima, despite atmospheric humidity being 98%, many suffer from the lack of potable water due to polluted wells and lack of rain. By tapping onto the air’s high amount of humidity, the billboard’s generators capture the humidity, does a ‘reverse-osmosis’, and turns it into purified water that is stored in tanks. Residents can then collect water from the billboard through the taps on its base.
