    [quote<]Hello Tatooine! An unpowered device can harvest water vapor in a desert @ Ars Technica[/quote<] Probably easier/cheaper to use an unpowered device to desalinate sea water. The MythBusters showed how this can be done. [url<]http://www.discovery.com/how-to-desalinate-water-on-a-desert-island/[/url<]

      didn’t read either articles yet but: desert vs desert [i<]island[/i<]

        It turns out that several non-island deserts are actually not that far from oceans/seas.

          The ocean is a desert with the life underground
          And the perfect disguise above.

            actually, desert is just a dried ocean..
            and ocean is a really wet desert..

            After nine days I let the horse run free
            ‘Cause the desert had turned to sea
            There were plants and birds and rocks and things
            There was sand and hills and rings
            The ocean is a desert with its life underground
            And a perfect disguise above
            Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
            But the humans will give no love
