With the advent of more water-conscious consumers all over the world, the need exists for a shower head that maximizes efficiency while using less water. This product is exactly what Nebia has spent five years achieving. The economical shower head uses up to 70% less water, driving an average shower down from using 20 gallons of water to just six.
Nebia has been totally re-engineered to use 70 percent less water than other shower heads, yet provide (its creators claim) a “superior shower experience“.
Rather than firing a continuous stream or a collection of large droplets, the Nebia (Italian for “mist,” or close to it) atomizes the water into a mist directed at your body. This leads to a number of things: More water ends up on your body rather than bouncing off, more heat is transferred from the drops to you and the surroundings, and it covers more of you without your having to move or rotate.
Nebia is unlike any shower you’ve ever experienced. According to their website, their H2MICRO™ technology atomizes water into millions of droplets to create 10 times more surface area than a regular shower. More water comes in contact with your body leaving your skin feeling clean and hydrated.
It gives you the best of a steam room and an invigorating shower that revitalizes your skin and your soul. The warm and cozy embrace of water makes you feel clean, refreshed, and ready to tackle your day head on.
Nebia leverages advances in design and thermofluids to create a better shower experience that actually saves you thousands of gallons of water a year. With those savings, Nebia pays for itself in about a year.
Showering just became something you can wholeheartedly enjoy.
“We want people to enjoy that intimate space called “the shower”, but with a better sense of both experience and water conservancy,” said Carlos Gomez Andonaegui from Mexico, a founder of Nebia, about the shower head market.
Gomez Andonaegui came up with the idea for the shower head in 2010 when he headed a health club chain Sport City in Mexico. Water was one of the club’s scarce resources, so he and his father worked on a solution, developing a prototype after two years.
They later met Philip Winter, who had previously worked for Toilets for People, a start-up that made waterless toilets for the developing world. The founders of Nebia moved to San Francisco last August and brought on a third founder, Gabriel Parisi-Amon, who recently left a job at Apple where he worked on the iPhone’s supply chain.
The price of this sophisticated shower head is $600 USD, the catch is that the system will set you back $300 — 10 times the cost of a nice normal shower head. It could pay for itself in a year or two if you have a family that takes long and frequent showers, but the Nebia is definitely a luxury item. If you back the gadget on Kickstarter, where it has already met its goal, you can expect your fancy shower times to start as early as spring of 2016.
