Crowdsourcing Mornings: Livin Shower

This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.

Let’s think about our shower this morning. We run the water and wait for it to warm up but don’t know when it will be ready. So we touch the water or check the steam to see if it’s warm enough. Okay, finally we think it’s good to get in. However, now we have to fine-tune the temperature by rotating the knob left and right to get to the sweet spot.  This way of controlling the shower temperature takes time, the moment is unpleasant, and it wastes water.  Livin Shower is a new type of shower control that lets you start your shower with just a press of a button at the perfect temperature while saving water. The new shower integrates software technology with elegant hardware to improve your holistic shower experience.

Skip all the hassles to take a shower. Plug in (or say, “Prepare my morning shower” to Amazon Echo or Google Home) and get notified – “Your shower is ready.”  Livin Shower warms up your shower and pauses the shower stream once the water temperature reaches the target so you can walk in and start your shower right away with just a press of a button. No more guessing how much the valve needs to be turned. Also, you can pause and resume your shower with one click.  From day 1, Livin Shower saves water by auto-pausing the shower stream once the temperature reaches the target in the preparation stage. It also helps reduce unnecessary water flow while in the shower as you can pause and resume your shower without losing the warm temperature.

Furthermore, our unique temperature control algorithm finds the shortest amount of time to reach the target temperature and minimizes water waste by analyzing your shower data on how the temperature is mapped in relation to the opening of the mixer valve.  This will save the water up to 1,875 gallons per year for average household* which is equivalent to 30,000+ glasses of water.  Be conscious of your shower and find out how much water you will actually save at your home with Livin Shower. Their mobile app will help you track your water use, temperature, and duration of your shower.

As of February 19th, this project has raised $89,000 of their $100,000 goal. This project has 12 days left to raise the $100,000 or it will not be funded!
