EASY DISTILLATOR

3.4 million people die each year from a water related disease. 780 million people lack access to clean water.
This device is meant to help citizens of developing countries who have no access to potable water or hikers trapped in the wild. Dirty water or seawater is poured into one end of the device; clean water evaporates and collects in a detachable cup at the other end. Distillated water is then safer for drinking.
