On being George Jetson

Digital Shower

When the future finally arrives, I think one of the things I’m going to appreciate the most is the digital shower. (Does anyone make one now?) I think being able to simply digitally set the water temperature will revolutionize my morning ablutions beyond belief. Fumbling the faucets for five minutes trying to achieve the perfect shower combination of hot and cold water is so old school. I imagine a world in which I can use a fog-resistant touch-screen to find NPR or ESPNRadio, alert me when I’ve been in there too long, and deliver the exact temperature to make me happy.

Update: A quick Google search found that there is someone making a digital shower. It’s even got a remote control! So now I guess I just need to imagine a world in which I can afford one …

    $1300 doesn’t seem that bad. You can prob find it for $400 on eBay.
