As our lives get more and more busy, our need to multitask gets greater. Now, here at Gainsborough, when we have a shower, we like to concentrate on enjoying the shower (surprise, surprise), but there are some people who would prefer to surf the web, or maybe check their email while they shampoo and condition.
There are already studies proving that we get anxious when separated from our phones, so there are probably many of us out there who would prefer to keep hold of the phone or tablet in the shower. Now, with water and technology not really getting along, these workaholics have been previously unable to multitask with their iPhone or iPad in the shower, but in the not-so-distant future, they may indeed get their wish.
A design concept called “Le Terme” has been created by Fei Chung Billy Ho and was a finalist in the Reece Bathroom Innovation Award in Australia. Le Terme is made of stainless steel with interactive glass panels that can be synced to any smart phone or tablet, meaning you can use the phone, watch videos or surf the web at no risk to your phone or tablet. The shower also allows you to listen to music – a huge plus for anyone who likes listening to songs and singing while in the shower (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?) The base of Le Terme is made from cypress wood, which kills bacteria, fungus and viral infections, helping to maintain a hygienic environment, with no need for deep-cleaning.
We’re quite impressed by the technology, but what do you think? Would you like a shower like this in your home?
