Water from the Sun...Cool!

OK all you solar panel techies...here is what's next. Solar water generation. Can't wait until there is a RV sized unit! What every Boondocker needs.

Well they SAY it will produce enough for a family of four..... that's only 4-5 gallons per day if it's only producing drinking water. So it would take almost a month to fill a 100 gallon fresh water tank. But then we could see RVs and conversions having two water tanks.... one for potable water for drinking, cooking and dish washing, and the other could be used to harvest rainwater or something which could then be filtered for particulates for uses like laundry, showering, and toilet flushing if you have a black water system, that kind of stuff where it's not as big of a deal (so long as it's relatively clean water) since it's not being consumed internally.

As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he accompanied the level 60 dwarves on the Smaug the Dragon raid. Those powerlevelers probably invited him solely so he could trigger fellowship attacks for them.
