Transforming Air Into Pure Drinking Water Is Finally Possible, Here’s How

At least one hundred million people live in desert regions around the world according to the UN, and they survive off of less than 25 cm of rainfall each year, and for many, even that minuscule water supply is under threat as the climate crisis is making dry areas even drier.
So scientists at UC Berkeley have been experimenting with materials that can pull drinking water out of thin air.
That’s right, right out of thin air.

Sounds like it could easily be a complete boondoggle. How much does it cost to manufacture and maintain these devices, versus how much water they produce? How does that compare to how much it would cost to simply ship water in from elsewhere?

Pulling water from the air takes a lot of energy, which is why it's pretty much never done for any reason other than getting rid of that water (i.e. dehumidifying).
