Comments on Whisson Windmills To Water Australia Like Vaporators?
Inventor from Oz creates windmills that pull water from the air - then you'll really need a droid that speaks the binary language of moisture vaporators. (Read the complete story)

"Let's not forget a little book from 1965 by Frank Hebert.. Dune. I think Frank Hebert was closer to this concept with the Fremen culture in his book than in the Star Wars reference you listed. Just my opinion though. BTW, I LOVE this site!!!"

"MetalMINIMayhem - you're way ahead of me. Readers will want to check the entry for Windtraps from Herbert's 1965 book Dune. Herbert is the master of futuristic fictional water recovery technologies: see also dew collectors and stillsuits."

"Exactly! Windtraps came first."

"I don't know how he is claiming to do it but if you could cause the air blowing to flow through a tube and then encounter something like the vortex coolers we used to use that might work. Here is a link to a similar unit. I couldn't find a link to the german ones we used but these are basically the same. vortex tube. just a thought Matt"

"Science fiction writers Pohl and Kornbluth wrote about the use of a Hilsch vortex tube on windy Venus. The idea is that the vortex tube provides free refrigeration on Venus because high wind velocity was free."
(Bill Christensen 2/1/2007 12:45:10 PM)
"On the Windmill vaporators: If he is using windmills he could easily either power a Hilsch rank vortex tube using the windmill as a compressor or more eccicently just run a more normal compressor directly from the wind. Planting vegetation might be a lot better way to go, and it was done in France a long time ago with oak trees in an area that was becoming desertized by an individula who meely planted acorns."

"THIS IS IT , I BELIEVE mAX WHISSONS WATER ROADS AND WINDMILL IS THE WAY TO GO WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH GOVERNMENTS ,I SAY LETS GO TALK TO THE sHIEK OVER AT ARAB EMERATES I THINK HE WOULD LISTEN IM VERY EXCITED ABOUT IT AND I WILL SPREAD THE WORD IS ALL I CAN DO FAITHFUL"
