Drinking another person’s sweat may sound obnoxious, but a machine that takes sweat-laden clothes and turns the moisture into drinking water has been launched in Sweden.

The device spins and heats the material to remove the sweat and then passes the vapour through a special membrane designed to only let water molecules get through, BBC reported.

Since its launch, its creators said more than 1,000 people have “drunk other’s sweat” in Gothenburg city.
