It's a mini dehumidifier that constantly collects water all day while you hike. One set of CR123s will last 7 days worth of daylight.

Just slept with Sawyer's CEO. I know everything.

It's a new filter than pumps 10% faster and weighs 50% more.

I hear Sawyer has been working with Ray Jardine to develop Ray-2-O(TM), an all-organic water product that can be made at home with Ray's kit for only $149.

Originally created to hydrate Ray's "Way of Life(TM)" grains, Ray-2-O(TM) has been trail tested over thousands of miles and proven to be both healthier and more cost-effective than standard water. Cut out the middle man!

Combined with Ray Sleep(TM), Ray Walking(TM), and other Ray Way(TM) gear kits, Ray-2-O(TM) had been clinically shown to increase daily mileages, decrease fatigue, and reduce dependency on major name-brand retailers and manufacturers. And perhaps most importantly, it has been proven effective at making Ray and his wife enough cold, hard cash to undertake their next adventure: circumnavigating the globe in a homemade hot air balloon fueled by Ray Potatoes(TM...Coming soon).

I know, I know!! They're coming out with a purifier where hikers only need field hydration first thing in the morning -- and then the system will purify and turn output back into input (to put it delicately) -- no more need to obtain additional water (unless you want to) all through the day and into the next! There.

Think it's possible to shrink the current Sawyer Squeeze to a cap-size? Maybe it's that?

Sorry if I shattered the stream of jokes. Wait, not sorry... ;D

It is hiking staff that will make water come from rocks and has multiple use features to part oceans and bring a series of plagues to other campers who annoy you.

Dehydrated water? That was in cans, on the shelf in a gas station east of Austin, NV back in the late 60's.
