Ever since Bill Gates retired from his day-to-day role at Microsoft, most of his attention has been focused on his philanthropic efforts with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. One of those efforts is to provide safe and clean drinking water to as many people as possible. In this case he’s showing us how water can be made from excrement.

Yes, poo. In the video bellow, we get a demonstration of how human waste can magically be turned into perfectly drinkable water thanks to incredible developments in water sanitation technology. The same machine also converts waste into electricity that can be transferred back to the power grid.

“If we can develop safe, affordable ways to get rid of human waste, we can prevent many of those deaths and help more children grow up healthy,” – Bill Gates.
