Watermill - Atmospheric Water Generator
The purpose of our initiative is to produce potable water by condensing atmospheric moisture in locations that do not have water, or that have water that is contaminated. The product is an intelegent "state of the art" appliance that can adapt to weather conditions to run at it's most efficient level. Another model of the watermill the "watermill cell" uses the same core technology,and is intended for use in underdeveloped countries. The cell can be used alone , or when a number of units are assembled
Describe the critical need your solution addresses.
We are currently testing beta units at a number of world sites, collecting data and demonstrating our product to interested parties. We have, or will be interviewing with such media as the BBC, Wired Magazine, Popular Mechanics, and many green and water related magazines. We recently were invited to demonstrate our product to the United Nations - World Conference on Water.
Should we be so fortunate as to win the prize money, we would use it to further the development of our existing product, but also use it to advance the solar and wind powered models we are presently designing.
Explain your initiative in more depth and its stage of development.
Comprehensive: Supplies clean fresh drinking water to areas of water shortage and poluted water, and does not deliver water in plastic water bottles.
Anticipatory: Reducing the carbon footprint for water bottles and eliminating the need for plastic bottle disposal.
Ecologically Responsible: Produces water from the abundant amospheric water supply, by using a minimum amount of clean electrical energy.
Feasible: Proven technology. As a result of 4yrs of development and testing, has produced an efficient and patented product.
Verifiable: 3rd party validation from Industry experts at Regen Technical in Calgary Alberta, Canada.
Replicable: By using a micro proccesor based controller, we can monitor the weather conditions , and control the watermill, in order to operate the machine efficiently. This allows the Watermill to be instantly usable regardless of global position.

How does your strategy and approach respond creatively and comprehensively to key issues?
I have been developing products for more than 40 years, on contract, or for my own product development company "Red Wing Products" Ltd. Many of these products have been taken to market successfully. Examples of my own products are: "Powdercrush" pill crusher (see www.manrex.com), "Rollmaster", programable electronic textile strip cutter(now owned by Eastman). more on request.
