SFU professor Majid Bahrami has created a machine that turns air into water.

'People are really struggling with water so water has become a major issue,' says Bahrami who explains the prototype took three years to create after years of research.

Unlike air conditioners, which can also similarly create condensation, he explains this prototype can create water under any weather conditions.

The prototype works by enhancing the humidity in the air, and it can create between 19 to 40 litres a day.

He explains he built it with a goal in mind:  to make drinking water more available to those who need it most.

'There is no secret that water has become a scarce commodity, especially freshwater', he adds.

He says this is not only true in places like North Africa, but also in the Canadian prairies that suffer from water shortages.

Bahrami says the technology is scalable, and in the future, machines can be as small as a coffee maker or as large as necessary.

He explains a few large corporations have approached him about his inventions, but he says his main goal is to give this technology to the people who need it most.

'I personally think we need to focus on more on the humanitarian and sustainable aspect of it'.

So what's next? He says his next project involves solar energy to help reduce electricity consumption.
