Orbital Systems Shower of the Future is a Water Recycler for your Favourite Martian

Want to stop wasting Water, given the fact that the typical Jamaica household uses (NWA, 2015) between 3,000 and 5,000 gallons of treated water per month?

Maybe what you need is a Shower of the Future by Swedish Startup Orbital Systems (McGrath, 2015) that’s literally, the Shower of the Future. Check out the video below

You see, the Shower of the Future is designed as complete replacement for your shower in your bathroom, instead of water running down the drain it’s collected and recycled until potable. The temperature is also maintained, thus no re-warming of hot water is required.

Also the water in the shower is blasted at you at a rate of 5 gallons per minute, besting the typical shower head that manages a mere 2.2 gallons per minute Thus a typical eight minute shower uses less than 1.3 Gallons, compared to 18 Gallons without this system. So how does it do this?

The Shower of the Future basically saves you 90% on your Water Usage and 80% on your Energy Bill, all simply by recycling water in much the same way it’s recycle on the ISS (International Space Station). In fact, CEO and co-founder of Orbital Systems, Mehrdad Mahdjoubi, used to work (Braw, 2014) on the NASA’s Mars Mission project.

Located in the Swedish university city of Lund, they originally focused solely on Space Research relating to the Mars Project. This as it takes between 150-300 days (Caine, 2013) for the Mission to Mars to reach the Red Planet, making every drop of water count.

Thus, recycling Water is a very important part of the Mars Mission; Orbital Systems has merely brought it down to Earth.

Shower of the Future is a complete replaces of your shower system, unlike other system that reduce your water usage, claims research analyst at the sustainability thinktank Sustainia, Esben Alslund-Lanthén, quote: “To our knowledge, Orbital Systems is leading in the market for water-saving showers. That’s not to say there aren’t other innovations out there, but the genius of this solution is that it reuses the water instead of just reducing water use like other similar products.”.

So while he gets his revenge on his former employees, you can get your revenge on your Utility Companies shows bills you dread, that being Light and Water. Best of all, this Shower of the Future comes with a Google Android and Apple iOS compatible App that’ll help you to monitor your water usage even when you’re not at home.
