Lifesaver: clean water, one bottle at a time

Too much of the world lacks access to clean drinking water. Engineer Michael Pritchard did something about it — inventing the portable Lifesaver filter, which can make the most revolting water drinkable in seconds. An amazing demo from TEDGlobal 2009.

With cutting-edge nanotech, Michael Pritchard’s Lifesaver water-purification bottle could revolutionize water-delivery systems in disaster-stricken areas around the globe.

My 2 cents: Distributed rules! Think about it. Globalization, division of labor, parallel processing in computer chips, routing of data packets, and so forth. Let me call it a LifeSaver approch to delivering clean water, one bottle at a time. You can get clean, sterile drinking water when and where you want it. Way to go!
