Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China, have created a device that uses solar energy to convert salt water into clean drinking water, offering hope to millions of coastal communities who lack fresh water and electricity but have access to seawater. The device will need some further investing and development to become affordable by those who need it most, but still this innovative new process creates hope for problem-solving technology of the future.

While scientists find a way to implement the device in everyday life, those who can rely on drinkable water from home taps can ditch plastic bottled water.
