I saw an interesting interview with Dean Kamen on the Colbert Report last night about a new water
distiller he invented at his DEKA research
company. You can watch the 6 min interview here: Interview - Dean Kamen | The Colbert Report | Comedy Central
This Vapor-Compression-Distiller looks really interesting, and although he does not give too many technical details, I was wondering if this would be more efficient than water-makers. Kamen mentioned that it does not use any membranes or reverse osmosis
. We have some pretty tech-savvy members, I was wondering what your impression is of this new technology and its possible applications to water
production on sailboats.
