Sylvania has come up with a nifty idea for combining green and illumination with its ECOlight. The LED light is powered by the water so needs no batteries or other power source. It also has a water temperature indicator and simple installation. The shower light is only $39.99 and can also double as an emergency light although if you have no hot water, you might want to skip the shower.

A while back we found a shower head that measures temperature and changes colors, but for bath fanatics, there is an LED Bath Light that does so much more. It not only displays temperature by colors and numbers, it can be put in Color Mode for when you are feeling frisky and Candle Mode when you want calm. Flashlight Mode is simply bright and solid. It also has its own charging base. Designed by Kai Chen, it is an upgrade on his original prototype lamp.

How often do you start to get in the shower only to find out that the water is either boiling hot or ice cold? The CVSCL-8100 Lighted Shower Head changes color depending on the water temperature. The LED displays green for less than 32º C, blue for 33 to 41º C, red for 42 to 45º and flashing red for anything above 46º C (~114.8º F.) The LSH carries a price of $17.16 and comes with everything you need to install.

Our “If I was Rich” product of the week has to be this WMK Shower Cabin. Note that we said Cabin. The enclosure doesn’t just rinse you off. It has AM/FM with digital control and integrated stereo speakers, an input for portable or tabletop CD player, a hands-free speaker phone, temperature with alarm, one-button steam control, a clock, and an exhaust fan. If that isn’t enough there is also mood lighting by the adjustable ceiling lamp, a back jet for hydrotherapy, a downpour shower option, an ozonator for bacteria elimination, a foot massage, and a jetted whirlpool tub. With a price of $7,099.00, if we just add a wine cooler, we can forsee never leaving the bathroom again

So we recently told you about the iCarta, a toilet paper holder that’s also an iPod dock and speaker system. The only thing was, we cautioned you about using it during hot showers, as the iPod would be exposed to the steam. Not so with iH2OW Hidro-Fi from iHome. It’s a water-resistant, dual speaker-system and dock, that will house most types of iPods (and MP3 players), and is powered by four AA batteries or an AC Adaptor (it is recommended to use batteries when using the device during a bath or shower). The iH2OW has an attached strap as it is designed to be hung from a rod or shower hook. There’s even a headphone jack, for private listening. The only thing is, there is no display, only basic track and volume controls, which some music lovers may find limiting. According to the website the iH2OW is coming soon, and will be available for $80 USD.
Funny. We never thought of our perfectly fine shower head as being “old school” until now. Yes, the daily shower has been given the “Minority Report”-treatment via the Grohe Ondus AquaFountain. Not only is it uber-cool-looking with its backlit touchpad and LCD display, you can program the exact temperature of the water. Avon calling? Hit the pause button on the AquaFountain and get the door. Want more? The actual showerhead imitates a waterfall, while the accompanying handset (yes, you read that correctly), offers a rain effect. We’re waiting to see how the Bubble Bath—who was unavailable for comment—will respond to these new developments. Unfortunately, there is no pricing information on the Grohe Ondus website, so stay tuned…
Penguins. What’s not to love? They’re cute, endearing, unique—and box office gold, baby! Because Linux users appreciate the power of the penguin, we think they’ll love this Penguin Shower Radio, bearing more than a passing resemblance to Tux, the Linux mascot. This little guy plays AM/FM, has suction cups for wall-mounting, and has—for reasons we’re still figuring out—an alarm button! We’re also not sure if the radio is as waterproof as its living, breathing counterpart, so use with caution. Takes 3AA batteries and retails for $30 USD, quite reasonable for such an adorable bathing companion.
