The 2011 James Dyson Award winner is designed to solve Australia's water crisis by literally pulling water out of thin air: It's called the Airdrop, and it was inspired by a beetle.

We've also got a personal, electric "multicopter" to get you around town, gorgeous solar powered artwork, a beehive with a modern makeover, electricity-free iphone speakers, and more in our roundup of the best images on TreeHugger this week.
