Water purifiers are rarely worthy of showing off. They're typically more function over form, if you know what I mean. However, this prototype is so pretty, you might be tempted to use it on already filtered water, instead of the germ-infested sludge it claims to clean.
The AquaIris uses a reusable removable filter that contains converter crystals where UVC rays kill germs as the water passes over the filter. I wonder if they'll make a slightly less fragile version for use while backpacking, and can it really keep contaminated water away from the filtered stuff? The video that follows makes it look simple enough. Can something this pretty really keep you safe?
