Lapse looks to combine the features of directly affecting the water flow and a person’s perception of their water usage when showering. As a retrofit, Lapse can be installed to fit most standard showers with the same ease as installing a showerhead. A timer can be set to keep track of water usage time. To encourage pausing the water when lathering, the water flow can be paused to a trickle—the trickle is maintained so users do not leave the shower without shutting the water off. The timer is also paused when the water is since water is not being used at this time, allowing for longer activities such as shaving, without the stress of a timer.
