Dispensing drinking water from the air: Kara Pure

Techstination feature for Thursday, March 16, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        A dispenser that takes moisture from the air and turns it into drinking water…without using a compressor.   Kara Pure is designed to do just that producing up to two and a half gallons of water a day…and purifying it as well.   So how does it work?  Kara Water Co-founder Cody Sooden…

“The best example I can give you is..the little packets in your shoe box that say don’t eat that keep the box dry.. we use a similar material.   So this material has the same natural phenomenon.  As we pass air over the material, it just pulls it out like a magnet.”

The cost…about 38 hundred dollars…is pretty steep.   But as volume production grows…it is hoped that will come down making the technology affordable to many more.   There’s more info at
