While the end of this video might make you cringe, you get over that really quickly when you realize what the implications of this kind of technology are. I mean, it’s magnificent. It sanitizes our waste, turns it into energy, and uses a portion of that power to produce clean drinking water.
Not only does that kind of machine have applications in third world countries around the world, but it could have a serious impact here at home as well.
How did this video make you feel? Inspired? Disgusted? Amazed? All of the above? What do you make of the way Bill Gates reacted to his taste test of the water? I personally think that his reaction was classic, and helps to cut through the “yuck” sentiment that might stop many people from trying it.
At the end of the day though, as Mr. Gates said himself, “It’s water.”
