Seems pretty cool, making use of an ancient technology. I can't see it filling a bottle in any quick amount of time though. It also wouldn't likely be very efficient in drier arid climates with low relative humidity.

It strikes me as one of those things that's a cool idea, but I doubt it would be super practical. But who knows, I could be completely wrong.

I couldn't find any info/specs on the website, just some photos, short videos, and very brief text description.

Gary, yea and my car manufacturer says I should get 8 more mpg than I do. Ymmv I reckon. It is probably largely dependent on geographical location , as with low relative humidity there is less water in the air. Also, it is probably largely dependent on maintaining a sufficient speed and airflow into the bottle.

I could be completely wrong, but my engineer brain seems a little skeptical, not that it wouldn't work, but that it's probably not nearly as good or as efficient as claimed. Think of an air conditioner condenser. Same basic principle, on a super hot, humid summer day they will drip and drain water like mad, on a warm fall or spring day though...they slow down dramatically.
