HYDERABAD: Attention all those who are worried about where their next glass, bottle of bucket of water is going to come from! A research team of Lord’s Engineering College at Langer Houz has come up with a solution for in these days of sheer drought - A machine that generates 40 litres of water from thin air. Literally!
A group of seven students Mohammed Muzaffer Hussain, Mohammed Parvez Qureshi, Mohammed Minhaj,Syed Abubaker Pasha, Salman Khan, Mohammed Munawar Uddin, Mohammed Sayeed and Mohammed Altaf, all in their third year in mechanical engineering, believe that their invention- the Aqua Water Generator launched on Wednesday will be a solution to the water woes.
Guided by the Research and Development Director Dr. Mohammed Masood and the HOD (Mechanical) Dr. Syed Azam Pasha Qadri under the leadership of Mohammed Muzzafer Hussain, the students say that besides generating water, their gadget also serves as a refrigerator, air conditioner and a water filter.
Demonstrating their prototype, these inventors also expressed their wish to commercialise the machine to serve the purpose of the public and private sectors. The Aqua Generator can be used for residential and commercial purposes that can be used for a large production of water.
The price of the mechanism may vary from `15,000-25,000. However, the price of the product might increase once the machine gets the glam global market look.As the generator has a water tank, the machine also comes with a humidity and temperature sensor which notes all the atmospheric activities.
“Our college being a great support to us, funded a part the project and constantly motivated and guided us in our endeavour Also, we used maximum scrap so that we can cut down our expenditures on the project”, says Mohammed Muzzafer Hussain , the captain of the student’s group.
It is their hard work and dedication that lead to this next gen innovation. These innovators have also managed to patent their invention with the patent number 201641000768.
“We have been planning and trying out different projects from our first year, it is only after great thought and trial and error, we were able to make such an invention. We have also made a few projects that involved the solar vehicle. It is only after all these experiments and research that we understand what it actually means to be an engineer and contribute to our society to surge forward with the advent in technologies”, adds Mohammed Parvez Qureshi.
“Mankind is in serious danger of exhausting the natural and renewable resources and it is very important that we find an alternative to either conserve our resources or use them wisely. It is machines like these that would help us consummate our resources”, expresses the Research and Development director Dr. Mohammed Masood.
Striking off all the criticism for choosing engineering, these aspiring engineers unlike every other normal engineering student proves that it is great passion and will to contribute in the advancement of science and technology is what explains the purpose of every profession in the society. Next time, when you are about say there is nothing but air, remember there is a lot that can be done with the atmospheric air.
