New Shower System Could Revolutionize Your Home

A team of researchers in California is working on an entirely new shower system that could revolutionize your home.

Researchers are using jet engine technology to create a circular shower head that lets out millions of droplets of mist. That allows more water to hit your body but less water comes out overall.

"We have a series of atomizing nozzles, so that we can create a new, soft experience with water that can get you wet right away," said  Philip Winter, Nebia.

The team claims the new shower system uses only 30 percent of the water of a normal shower system. That'll save you money, and help limit water in drought-stricken areas like California.

No word yet on when this could end up in your home.

The team has put the product on Kickstarter, hoping to raise the money needed to take this prototype into the stores. In fact, one of its first donors was Apple CEO Tim Cook.
