IntelliH2O, a water purity tester device and application, can help decrease diseases by verifying the potability of tap water and consequently reduce eco footprints from plastic bottle usage. Designed and patented by an incredibly talented high school sophomore, Christopher Lee has realized his vision to develop a wireless, Bluetooth supported application and a meter with dimensions barely exceeding an inch square. Simply insert the device into the water source in question and you’ll immediately get a read on the water quality on your smartphone app.
This revolutionary product will enable not only people in nations with notoriously polluted water sources to make better choices, but also expected to be popular with environmentally-minded first and second world countries whose populations are concerned with the toxicity of their water sources as well as travelers and campers. We expect to be hearing about this remarkable young man for years to come.
