Lighted Shower Head Changes Color with Temperature

colorhead.jpg

This shower head’s embedded LEDs change color with the temperature of the water, going from white to blue to red as it heats up. Even niftier, though, is that it requires to external power source to work, instead powering itself from the pressure of the water itself, presumably with a small turbine.

Right now it’s listed on Alibaba.com, which means it’s not easily available in a store, but perhaps will be when someone contracts the Chinese manufacturer to produce a bulk order.

    BOBKAT I like the Nuclear Food containers on that page. Take ‘em to work and watch the terrorist fun begin!

    There is already one available for faucets! It’s intended as a novelty but has actually been widely adopted for use by preschools, nursing homes, etc (anywhere someone could get accidentally burned)!

    You can find them here.

    bobkat, they’re cheaper ($15) on thinkgeek.com

    i’d love to get one of these shower heads, but there’s no way that i’m breaking up with my current one.

    Joel, you seem to have a good eye for interesting novelties. Why not start your own import business?

    Makes me wish I still did acid!

    Shouldn’t “requires to external power source” be “requires -no- external power source”?

    Looks fun. Once you figure out what shade corresponds to your preferred temp, you’d never need get frozen or scalded again.

    Now if it would additionally react to audio cues then I could get on with that disco shower experience.

  10. Halloween Jack says:

    I want one that’s red all the time, so that it looks like I’m showering in blood. Mua ha ha ha!

    To someone who grew up watching Mr. Freeze on the old Batman TV series (like me), this makes perfect sense.

    An invention similar to this one might help me to see more clearly when I’m shaving my butt in the shower.
