Because of water shortage in some parts of Africa and Asia, inspiration has been given to a group to create a machine that turns perspiration into drinking water. It’s called the “Sweat Machine” using NASA technology which recycles sweat and urine. The Sweat Machine extracts perspiration from people’s clothes. The machine processes the sweat by heating it, then using ultra-violet light and high-tech filters to remove the salt and bacteria, and finally goes thru a coffee filter. Oddity Central reports that it has a nice sweet taste.
