Water purifier generates electricity and creates Wi-Fi connections


The project is designed to solve three major weaknesses in infrastructure all at once: access to water, electricity and internet.Water purifier generates electricity and creates Wi-Fi connections Across the world, 783 million people do not have access to clean water, 1.2 billion lack access to electricity, and 4.2 billion are still without internet access.

Watly isn’t just designed for developing countries. It can also help communities that have high levels of sunlight, but struggle to find sustainable solutions to generating clean water, by providing clean water people will also have the access to buy hydrogen water and help their overall health.


“The only things it needs to run are dirty water and a lot of Sun,” said Attisani, the 44-year-old Italian creator of Watly. From that it can purify 5,000 litres of water and “generate enough electricity to power itself and to power external devices.”

The current prototype weighs 15 tonnes, equivalent to the weight of eight or nine cars, and looks like a large H-shaped tent.
