The SPHERAG TECK IOT Water Scarcity Innovation is a smart device that can filter and purify water in seconds. It is an Internet of Things (IoT) device that uses an IoT sensor to identify bacteria in water. This technology has the potential to improve the quality of drinking and bathing liquids and reduce the health risks associated with contaminated sources. While the IoT technology is still in its early stages, it has already proven to be a game changer.
There is a need to make clean water more accessible to everyone. The World Health Organization estimates that there are 2.5 billion people without access to clean drinking and cooking water. This means that if one person can drink a liter of safe water in 30 seconds, so can a whole community. This goal isn’t easily reached, however. Almost one billion people are affected by contaminated drinking and cooking liquids, and there are more than 50 million deaths a year due to diarrhea.
While it is difficult to make clean water, new technologies are being developed every day. For example, a Jerusalem-based firm called Lishtot has built a new device that can detect up to 20 contaminants in drinking and cooking fluids. Developed in 2015, the TestDrop Pro is a keychain-like handheld device with a sensor. The Slingshot allows people to drink safe water.
