A Silicon Valley start-up founded by designers who have worked for Apple are pushing a new showerhead that they say can save water and revolutionize how people think about showering.
The company, called Nebia, launched on Kickstarter today, Fast Company Design reports. “The pitch is simple: most shower heads push water from the pipe out of tiny holes that create pulses of water or diffuse mists,” the article says. “By "atomizing"—think perfume, not CERN—the stream of water through six nozzles arranged in a halo, the Nebia creates a steady stream of pressured "cozy mist" that still gets the conditioner out of your hair but uses a claimed 70% less water than a traditional, low-flow shower head.
A typical shower head uses 2.5 gallons per minute, while the Nebia will use only 0.75 gallons per minute.
