Bill Gates loves the Janicki Omniprocessor, an amazing machine that turns human waste into electricity and drinkable water. He saw it and he is extremely impressed. So impressed in fact that he drank from a glass of water that was human poop only five minutes earlier. "It's water," he said, obviously relieved.

"In places without good waste treatment plants, it could be a real game-changer," he says in his The Gates Notes YouTube page. Indeed it is. In fact, drinking water distilled from poop and reprocessing all our waste is the future.
