Safe Drinking Water
Here is an invention that seems way past due. A portable water filtration system that can filter out bacteria and virus. Hand these out to folks who don't have access to clean water where they live or during a disaster and suddenly they aren't as dependent on rescue agencies delivering drinkable water.
It's called the Lifesaver Bottle and was invented by Michael Pritchard. Watch the TED video below and be amazed.
