Edward Linacre, inventor of Airdrop, won Â£10,000 last year to develop the device, which he describes as a low-cost way to grow crops in very dry regions.
Mr Linacre, from Melbourne, Australia, was inspired by a desert beetleâ€™s technique of capturing moisture from air. Relying on the principle that even the driest air contains water molecules, Airdrop pumps air through a network of underground pipes and cools the air to the point of condensation, before delivering water to the roots of plants.
â€œIâ€™m looking at a global problem and Iâ€™ve received a global response,â€ he said. â€œEverything from agricultural firms in China to the Chinese government, research companies in the Middle East and the US, [are] all looking to partner in the development or distribution.â€
However, the 28 year-old is happy to develop it at home for the time being: â€œIf another company develops it, it becomes their product. I want this to support Australian innovation. I sell it off and Australia continues to be known for mining, beaches and beer.â€
