• “Steppy” shower heats water using feet movements

    Paul Frigout has designed an “eco-shower” which will surely make conventional showers obsolete. This shower heats water and provides flow using your feet movements. The floor of the shower is made up of blocks which depress when your feet land on them and a metallic cylinder appears which makes your feet go up and down in a very rapid motion. This creates pressure required for water to flow. This water then flows through the turbine in the shower-head generating electricity which is then used to heat the water.

    The building materials for the “eco-shower” use Ice Stone (made up of recycled glass, concrete and steel) instead of using ceramic which cannot be recycled. We truly require more such innovations if the world has to sustain in these energy crises.
