Too bad they don't publish the detailed plans.

Re: Solar desalinator

This article https://techxplore.com/news/2020-02-...alination.html has a picture.

Hard to tell exactly how big it is or if it’s up on a platform for easier access, but looks about the size of a life raft canister + a bit, or perhaps a rolled-up dinghy. Interesting, for about $100 in readily available materials.
