Drop - Water Control / Consumption Control Gadget

Drop - Water Control
Drop - Water Control

Showers/baths consumes a lot of electrical energy and sometimes are also responsible for a wastage of water, which is currently a serious concern in the world. In this point of view, this project was developed to lower the waste of both electricity and water from the showers, not by the changing of the shower system, but by re-educating the users. This new device will help the user to reduce the water consumption by means of luminous signs. There is no need to toggle any switch since it works based on sensors. The idea is to aware the users, without causing any annoyance, regarding that showering is also a moment to relax
