The Dean Kamen documentary Slingshot, which features his Slingshot water purification system, was officially released earlier this month with screenings in Los Angeles and New York City. The film continues to make the festival circuit, with screenings in Philadelphia today and Santa Fe next week.
It’s worth noting that while Kamen’s target markets for the Slingshot device are in the developing world, the drought in the Western United States may generate additional demand for the Slingshot. The water conservation tips on the film’s website are worth following, and perhaps some enterprising (or desperate) local government may try to address its water troubles through judicious use of technology like the Slingshot.
And if you’ve heard of some city or county already doing this, let me know!
