Mímir turns air into water

Published: 11 June 2008

2008-06: On June 5, it was time to perform for the four LTU students who, in collaboration with students from Stanford University, Royal Institute of Technology and Lund Faculty of Engineering, had the task to develop a product that produces clean drinking water from air humidity. During Design EXPE, the annual design fair at Stanford University, the students presented the Mímir prototype, named after the Norse mythology’s guardian of the well of knowledge and wisdom.

The American company Immerse Global has financed the project together with Swedish PIEp (Product Innovation Engineering Program), which is a national program aiming to strengthen the innovative capability within product and business development. Both sponsors had representatives at the design fair, and it is no question that both they and other visitors considered Mímir as one of the absolut high notes of the fair.

We congratulate Jenny, Erik, Johan, Pontus and their global collaborators to a very impressive project result!

A press release will come in August in conjunction with the Master Thesis presentations at LTU.

Thanks to: Immerse Global, PIEp, the Center for Design Research at Stanford University, and the Kempe Foundations.
