Sip From Your Ford When Catchpocket Shows Dewsparkle
Incredibly, Ford has worked out a way for you to drink water reclaimed from your car's air conditioner while you drive.
(Drink from your Ford, Usul)
Fans of Frank Herbert's epochal novel of desiccation Dune will be thinking that Ford has actually turned your car into a kind of stillsuit; the water that is pulled out of the air is brought to a small spigot in the passenger compartment.
...He found his stillsuit's watertube in its clip at his neck, drew a warm swallow into his mouth, and he thought that here he truly began an Arrakeen existence--living on reclaimed moisture from his own breath and body. It was flat and tasteless water, but it soothed his throat...
I guess now the only time you will need to stop will be for bathroom breaks. Unless Ford engineers learn even more lessons from science fiction. How about it, Ford engineer Doug Martin?
