The Swater: AKA Star Wars Moisture Vaporators

Remember that little film called Star Wars (Episode 4)..? Well, there is a character named Luke Skywalker who lived on a moisture farm that had a field of Moisture Vaporators... 
Turns out designers Chun Yen Tsao and Hsing-Tan Yang have come up with a (concept) device that brings sci-fi to reality with the Swater. These little guys collect and 'farm' the precious moisture in dry environments.... 
What Swater does is use sunlight to collect clean distilled water from the condensation that builds up inside of the device. It’s eco friendly and probably will one day save the entire world. The awl-shaped cap has a solar panel that generates the energy needed to run the electrical heating tube and disinfecting light.
