Unfortunately, along with your worries goes a ton of water — a resource that many are predicting will be more precious than gold in the coming years. To help us keep track of how towering we escape reality in the shower, inventor Trevor Murphy has developed the Aqualim.

The Aqualim requires no electrical parts and

can be easily installed on any existing shower, no need for a plumber. Using a hydraulically powered motor, that shower contraption allows you to regulate the volume of water used per shower.
