The distiller is a chemical-, membrane-, and filter-free water purifier. Kamen claims the box draws pure drinkable water from oceans, poisons—even a 50-gallon drum of urine.

Kamen says we could "wipe out 50% of human disease."

Pretty cool invention!

Getting pure water is great, I am not sure that 50% disease part.
And how much energy needed to do that? compare to boil and collect purified water?

Maybe he means, fifty percent of PEOPLE GETTING disease? It looks like it is plugged in, then you could run it on solar or wind. No burning!!!
