5 Green Tech Innovations at CES 2018 Trade Show

Going green is getting easier, thanks to new innovations in green tech revealed at CES 2018, the largest consumer electronics trade show in the world, taking over a large portion of Las Vegas with more than 4,000 exhibitors, 2.6 million net square feet in show floor and over 180,000 attendees.
The four-day event happens in early January every year.
Here’s a roundup of a few green tech products that caught my attention and those of photographer John Ivanko.
In future posts, I’ll reveal some promising super-rugged tech that might deployed on the homestead or some innovations worth considering if you want to step up your emergency or disaster preparedness.
Zero Mass Water’s SOURCE Hydropanel can Take Your Drinking Water Off-the-Grid Water is vital to life, yet according to The Water Project, as many as 1 in 9 people worldwide lack access to clean and safe drinking water.
It transforms water vapor from the air into clean drinking water using photovoltaics and proprietary vapor collection panels.
The SOURCE is able to produce 4 to 10 liters of water on a sunny day, or the equivalent of 8 to 20 standard 16.9 oz.
“The water then comes from the [SOURCE located on the] roof or the yard to your kitchen or anywhere you’d like a dispenser, via a very small 3/8” tube.” -Advertisement- From Zero Mass Water’s headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona to India or Mexico, the SOURCE can operate in a variety of climates and conditions using only water vapor in the air and solar energy.
The SOURCE features a battery for production on cloudy days and a 30-liter reservoir to keep you hydrated.
If the air temperature nears freezing, the SOURCE will automatically enter ‘Hibernation Mode,’ protecting itself until the temperature rises.
