The team at Silicon Valley startup Liquidity Nanotech believe they have created the quickest and easiest way to drink clean water fetched from any source. Whether traveling abroad or hiking in the backcountry, simply fill up the Naked Filter portable water filtration bottle and start drinking–no pumping, no chemicals, no batteries, and no waiting.
Based on 15 years of R&D from leading polymer scientists and experts on nanostructured materials, Liquidity designed a nanofiber membrane that physically separates particles from your water by trapping them inside. The Naked Filter bottle uses this membrane to create a mechanical micro-filter with an activated carbon core. The integrated filter removes 99.9999% of the microorganisms, including bacteria, cysts, and any particle bigger than 0.2 microns in diameter from the water you drink, while the activated carbon core improves the taste and odor.
The Naked Filter is stupid simple to use. You simply fill up the bottle with water from any source and screw on the cap. When you’re ready to take a drink, the water passes through the filter and shoots straight into your mouth.
Because the filter uses a mechanical filtration process, Naked Filter remains safe throughout the entire life of the filter–in other words, it will reliably and unfailingly remove bacteria and cysts from your water. Over time, the filter’s flow rate will gradually slow, and eventually shut off completely. All you have to do then is replace the filter.
Bonus? The Naked Filter is compatible with a variety of other water bottles–just swap out the old cap with the filter cap. A filter lasts for around 20-30 gallons of water or 75 L – 115 L, depending on the quality of the water filtered of course.
Liquidity Nanotech is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to take pre-orders on the Naked Filter portable water filtration bottle. For a pledge of $10, you receive one bottle and one filter, with expected delivery in August.
