Sweat machine takes your perspiration and makes it drinkable

There’s a certain ick factor tied to drinking water that comes from sweat, but hey, water is water, yes? Mattias Ronge is the mastermind behind the sweat machine that transforms sweat from clothes into drinkable water. Ronge got Andreas Hammar to make the device from washing machine parts, a coffee percolator and a water filter.

This machine was revealed for a UNICEF campaign during Gothia Cup, a youth soccer tournament in Gothenburg. It’s all rather rad, but water purifying pills, for instance, remain a more feasible option. The sweat machine might not cure the problem of dispatching clean water to the entire world, but it certainly raises awareness among some parts of it.
