Green Shower Radio is powered by water

Posted in Radio by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2011

Are you green and also like to listen to music in the shower? If so, then check out this new radio called the H2O Shower Powered Radio. The radio connects directly to your shower hose and uses the water pressure to charge its internal battery for playing.

The radio’s H2O micro turbine is spun by the water flowing through the case which powers a generator that charges the battery. Hopefully it doesn’t require super long showers to charge it up.

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on June 28th, 2009

The Intelligent Hose curbs wasteWhat do washing the car, watering plants, and wet T-shirt contests have in common? That was a trick question. You probably answered that they all waste water, but only the first two are a waste of water, wet T-shirt contests are understandable. But they all do add up to a large utility bill.

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2009

Remote-controlled 100 foot water cannonIn water warfare, he who has the most serious weaponry will rule. And this water cannon is serious. Unlike a water gun, you don’t even have to be anywhere near your enemy. That’s because this water cannon can hit a target from 100 feet away and works by being attached to a garden hose.

It even has a remote that works from up to 30′ away. The cannon features three different interchangeable nozzles. One for stream, mist or spray. Mist would be good for watering the lawn or cooling off on a hot day.

iPod Water Phone

Posted in Mobile Phones by Conner Flynn on June 3rd, 2009

iPod Water PhoneWhen you design phones while on crack, there are bound to be some bad results. The iPod Water phone, despite it’s name, isn’t waterproof and it doesn’t even look like an iPhone. These knock-off companies are really slipping lately. I’m very disappointed. I thought the idea was to make your thing look like the other more desirable thing.

The specs are also disappointing, featuring dual band GSM connectivity, a 2.2″ display, audio and video playback, Bluetooth support and a built-in digital camera of unknown megapixel count. It also has an integrated FM tuner to help you keep radio alive.

H2O filter turns your pee into drinkable water

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2009

H2O filter turns your pee into drinkable waterWe’ve seen the scenario in many futuristic Sci-fi movies. Some fancy machine turns your urine into actual drinkable water. It’s a very real concept. Once you take out all of the bad stuff, what do you think is left? Water. That’s what.

To use the H2O filter, just urinate straight into it, then put the lid on. For some reason the next step is to squeeze it between your knees to get the filter doing it’s job. Squeezing your knees together usually comes before this part, when you need to pee real bad. Next, just drink up from the spout at the bottom.

Panasonic announces power saving water heatersPanasonic has announced a batch of 16 heat pump water heaters that will save energy and keep your water temperature constant by using a human presence sensor. The mechanism is able to reduce power consumption by up to 35% in winter, which is when you use the most.

If you’re in Japan, you can get one by July 10. Just don’t expect it to be affordable. The HE-KU37CQS model has a tank capacity and hot water supply pressure of 370L and 280kPa and retails for about $8,211. Seems like a cruel joke, but at that price they are selling you the remote control separately.

ECO Showerdrop keeps your shower short

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on October 29th, 2008

ECO Showerdrop keeps your shower shortThere’s nothing like a nice long and hot shower, but that isn’t good for the environment. Plus, in the cold of winter, it’s pretty tough to actually get out of the shower. If you need some help shutting the water off and getting out, the Eco Showerdrop will help you. It acts as both a water measurer and a timer, and it’s programmable.

Once you hit the water limit you’ve set for yourself, it beeps at you until you quit. If you keep showering, the device will calculate how much water you’re using and tell you, hoping that you can be guilted out of the shower. Different showers use different amounts of water, so the Eco Showerdrop can read how much water your specific showerhead is releasing. So hopefully you can set it for longer showers.
