Ever wanted to create your own mineral water? Well, now it’s possible with Mitte, the first smart home water system in history. Apparently, it’s capable of purifying and enhancing water through a process similar to the natural water cycle.
The product uses a proprietary distillation-based method that purifies the water. Furthermore, Mitte goes all in by adding essential minerals for a more healthy drink. It sounds like a great idea, and thanks to Kickstarter, the world might get its first chance to use a smart home water system by December.
How does Mitte work?
Purifying water with Mitte is not as straightforward as you might think. One doesn’t just throw water into the machine to get healthy water. You see natural water comes with several minerals, but usually, these minerals are removed during the purifying process.
To combat this problem, Mitte relies on “mineral cartridges” to replicate nature’s process of mineralizing water. In nature, we know that water picks up all the essential minerals while passing through rocks, but that’s not possible with this machine.
The mineral cartridges contain all that was removed, and as such, is designed to add them back to the water while Mitte is doing its thing. Users can choose from three cartridges; Mitte Balance, Mitte Vitality, and Mitte Alkaline.
If you’re up for the Balance, then expect something along the lines of regular bottled water, but with calcium, magnesium, and potassium. Furthermore, it shouldn’t taste any different, so that’s great for most people.
For those who prefer Vitality, well, it has Iron, Zinc, and Selenium, along with the other minerals available in Balance. This particular water is more for boosting mental and physical performance, according to the creators of the water machine.
As for Alkaline, well, it brings to the table everything as the others, with the uniqueness of being rich in antioxidants.
We should point out that each cartridge can produce up to 400 liters of water, which is enough to last three months for a family of four people.
There’s an app
“The Mitte app allows you to monitor current cartridge usage and set up (optional) demand-driven automatic ordering of new mineral cartridges,” according to the developers. “We will only send you a new cartridge when your current one is running low.”
Features of the app
- Dispense water with specific water temperature and amount
- Get real-time information on water quality and machine usage
- Monitor mineral cartridge levels and manage cartridge ordering
- and much more…
Technology is indeed improving the future due to the creation of the Mitte and other exciting products. At the moment, the campaign has surpassed its goal of €75,000 with 22 days to go.
