Everyone is talking about the Nebia shower head backed by Apple CEO Tim Cook on Kickstarter. The Nebia shower head is a futuristic looking bathroom product that promises to save 70% on water consumption. It does this by atomizing water particles into millions of water droplets that can cover 10 times the surface area of a conventional shower head.
The shower head features a futuristic design that is very clean and minimal, perfectly suited for a modern bathroom. The design also allows anyone to install it, perfect for all the DIY’ers out there.
Potential problems of the design may include the need to adjust the height of the shower head. I assume for maximum effect, the user must be directly under the shower head at a certain distance. Each time someone new enters the shower, it will need to be adjusted. I would like to see future models adjust automatically to a user’s height either through memory or sensors in the shower.
Another potential problem is seeing how this product works on different people with different types of hair and body types. Is it just as effective on a large person as a skinny one? What about curly hair? Is it just as effective as a normal shower head for people with dirty jobs that come home covered in oils, grease, etc.?
Considering that the product has yet to be released to the public, it is hard to judge the claims being made by the manufacturer. If all the claims are true, this would be a great product for drought stricken areas such as California. It would also be great for industries that rely on water for bathing such as the spa and hotel industry.
