The H2O Power radio generates its own operating power via the force of the running water f...

For all the people out there who like listening to the radio while they’re in the shower, various companies offer waterproof battery-operated “shower radios.” There’s nothing particularly wrong with these radios, but ... why change or recharge the batteries if you don’t have to? No, we’re not suggesting running a power cord into the shower. Instead, you might be interested in getting an H2O Power water-powered radio.  Read More

Haier Power Pad takes energy from shower water and returns it to hot water system

The Haier PowerPad is a concept device shown at SinoCES which captures the energy contained within the water that runs off our bodies every morning in the shower, and returns said energy to the hot water tank. Haier claims the PowerPad is currently capturing and returning 15% of the energy coming out of the faucet and by the time it goes on sale six weeks from now, that figure will be 20-30%. Haier is one of the world’s most innovative companies and is hence foolish to bet against, but we’re struggling to understand the technologies being used and just how optimistic the claims are.  Read More

Water Pebble helps you to stop wasting water by taking too long in the shower (Photo: Prie...

In today’s water-conscious environment, any device that helps conserve precious H2O should be applauded. Paul Priestman from design company Priestmangoode has created the Water Pebble – a gadget that monitors how long you’re taking in the shower by flashing red when it’s time to get out. But what makes Water Pebble different from other timing devices is that the Water Pebble memorizes how long you took for your first shower and sets about gradually minimizing the amount of water you use by reducing the time it takes for the device to flash red in subsequent showers.  Read More

Hotjugz portable hot shower

March 8, 2007 Simple and effective and incredibly useful. The US$60 HOT JUGZ portable shower offers a hot, long-lasting, portable shower. As it uses human power, it can be operated anywhere, and because it weighs just 4lb, it’s easy to get it there. Hot Jugz Showers will run for over two minutes on just 15-20 pumps and with over two gallons capacity, the shower can last up to 16 minutes. The idea is that you fill up the insulated jug with hot water and it will remain warm for extended periods of time (six hours for the Commando unit and four hours for the cheaper US$50 unit). This makes it ideal for sports, camping, hunting, giving the dog a wash before it gets in the car and will even serve as a car or boat wash. It’s a kinda cool and very useful promotional item to boot, as they can be ordered in a variety of colours with your company's logo. Via Gizmodo  Read More

Aerated showerhead cuts water use by 30 per cent

November 17, 2006 With man’s mismanagement of the environment now firmly on the global agenda thanks to the growing evidence of global warming, water conservation is now an issue for everyone. Water, like money, is a very finite resource and if we don’t stop splashing it against the wall, we’re going to have serious long terms problems – all of us – not just the poor nations of the world but the rich nations too. So it was good news this week when we found that Australia’s national research agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), has found a way to use a third less water when you shower, without diminishing the experience in any way. CSIRO scientists have developed a simple ‘air shower’ device which, when retrofitted to existing showerheads, fills the water droplets with a tiny bubble of air. The result is the shower feels just as wet and just as strong as before, but now uses much less water. The device is expected to retail for less than AUD$20 and be installed by householders. CSIRO is now seeking a suitable commercial partner to manufacture and market the technology globally. The CSIRO invention uses venturi technology.  Read More
