Right now it's still in the prototype stage looking for research funding. I would say that for now it is neither.

Re: Anyone Tried This invention ?

Cool idea, but it has a narrow range of climatic conditions in which it will work well:

"Retezαr says the bottle works best between 86 degrees and 104 degrees Fahrenheit and between 80 and 90% humidity. Over the course of an hour, Fontus can produce roughly 0.5 quarts of water."

I hope it gets refined and improved over time.
