Interesting read, I wish you will share this in your problem solving discussions. Most often discussions are about problems and rarely are discussions about solutions. Even my attempts to share applied research solutions with Californians experiencing the worst drought on record, where the Californian engineers have failed to return my emails discussing the water generators that converts air to drinking water.
That does frustrate me, however it also fuels my suspicions that the possibility that California’s drought is a engineered crisis for a hidden agenda…
Researchers and Engineers build engines powered by water vapors!
“Engineered systems rarely, if ever, use evaporation as sources of energy, despite myriad examples of such adaptations in the biological world,” a paper published in Nature by a team of authors, including researchers Xi Chen, Ozgur Sahin and others, claimed.

“Simple devices made of bacterial spores, glue, and plastic may allow capturing energy from evaporating water.
This video explains the motivation behind our work and the exciting process of scientifically driven innovation.
