In the future there will be a cool machine that could turns a toilet waste into a drinkable water. This cool concept called Scaffold Device was funded US$ 100.000 by Bill Gates and Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a technology that could change the water from the toilet into the drinkable water.
Manchester University’s Sarah Haigh is an expert in nanotechnology - the science of manipulating atoms in matter - and says, it could make waste water from toilets safe to drink. With the help of nanomaterials and bacteria, Sarah believes that this technology simply can not decipher the dirty water into the water ready for drinking but also can be made of human waste is converted into drinking water. : D
Sarah believes that a scaffold device holding a mixture of bacteria and tiny metal nano-particles will react with the water to extract useful hydrogen, with the remainder filtered again to produce clean water.
Their idea for an inexpensive fuel-producing, water-cleaning device for the developing world, beat more than 2,000 other proposals.
And the group stand to receive a further $1m from the Gates next year if they can demonstrate the chemical reactions they propose can actually work
As we said, it is kind of disgusting but if there is no choice as happens in some countries it is difficult to get clean water when this technology can be successful, you can imagine how many millions of lives can be saved.
This technology is also not necessarily be able to make the water dirty mineral water quality but guaranteed that the water is safe and ready to be used as drinking water.
