Pebble / Bathing device


//Problem - Bath water consumption//
In household activities, baths are nearly the most water consuming one. Normally, it requires large amounts of heated water (80-150L /an adult-once), and the energy bill would make some of us feel guilty about running baths frequently.

//Inspiration - an Aesop's fable, the crow and the pitcher//
Aesop told us of the thirsty crow that is able to drink from pitcher after using pebbles to raise the water level. We believe that the wisdom can also be applied in our daily life so as to quench earth’s thirst and save our lives.

//Solution - Displace water by dropping "PEBBLE" into the bathtub//
