Most of us are used to opening a faucet, and getting an endless stream of clear clean drinking water. But environmentalists tell us that the fresh water supply will become increasingly tight in the future.
To make us think about how much water we are using, designer Harvey Bewley has created the Twist Faucet. Despite its ultra cool styling that would look at home in any chic designer's bathroom, the Twist makes you work for your H20 by cranking the knob in and out. If that's not enough to remind you that water isn't free and endless, there's also a digital readout that shows your consumption, along with a water temperature readout.
The Twist is just a concept for now, but if they decide to build it, I would suggest adding a water limiter that shuts off the flow after a certain number of gallons. This would bring a additional benefit by limiting how much time your partner might spend locked in the bathroom.
