Luxury Technology Show: UWS Air X Atmospheric Water Generator (video)

Written by Alfred Poor

At the Luxury Technology Show in New York, our Alfred Poor checks out the UWS Air X Atmospheric Water Generator and its tech, which cleans the air while generating pure H20 for your water cooler. Analysis, video. — Imagine getting pure, clean water out of thin air. And now imagine that the air in your home or office gets scrubbed clean at the same time you’re getting that water. That’s what the Air X Atmospheric Water Generator from Untapped Water Systems (UWS) promises.

I met UWS execs for a demo of this technology at the Luxury Technology Show in New York City. 

This redesign of the water cooler actually pulls water right out of the air, then filters and disinfects it by bathing it in ultraviolet light to kill any viruses or bacteria. At the same time, the system filters and disinfects the air as it processes it. Meanwhile, the unit keeps the water cool and fresh until you’re ready for a refreshing drink.

UWS also makes a clever water bottle that can filter water from just about any source and then disinfects it with ultraviolet light. The battery-powered device is great for hikers and campers who want fresh water without having to pack it in. Take a look at both products in the aNewDomainTV video interview I conducted with Chad Ordoyne, executive director at UWS.

Here’s how you’re able to have a water cooler that never empties. See more below.
