This company produced a really cute design of a solar still
<http://www.watercone.com/product.html>. The problem is, you probably
won't have it with you in a survival situation--that's always the
problem with survival situations!
Plastic bags, however, are practically ubiquitous. I can't help but
think there must be some way to work it with a plastic bag--something
along the lines of getting water out of trees.
