Water-Saving / Wassersparender Duschkopf

Water-Saving
Water-Saving

Most people take a shower every day and it can waste a lot of water. Therefore, we proposed a different idea to save water by reminding people how much water they use in a shower (or in a day). By means of this design, people can pay attention to the amount of water used and get into the habit of conserving water. A built-in small hydroelectric device will generate the power for the screen and the speaker. For every five liters of water used, the showerhead will beep to remind the user and keep tracking. A reset button for the screen is built at a spot of the showerhead that is not easily touched by mistake.
