Submission + - Extract water from the air with wind power

cammoblammo writes: "The Australian Broadcasting Corporation is reporting the invention of a wind powered device which will apparently extract up to 7,500 litres per water per day from the air. Whilst the details are unclear it seems that the device uses the drop in pressure behind the blades of a turbine to cool air, which then passes over refrigerated metal plates which are cooled by power from the turbine, in a footprint of only 4 metres square.

It all sounds a little simple to me, but with a drought ravaging much of Australia this device, if it works, could make the inventor very, very rich. What does the Slashdot brains trust think?"
