Innovation surrounds us every day and with the introduction of new and exciting products, we’re also seeing innovations to pre-existing products we’ve been using for as long as we can remember. This can be exciting in the world of invention production as it’s an opportunity to improve on things we have grown accustomed to but aren’t necessarily the best way to do things. For the sake of this article, let’s take a look at some of the products that we find in our common bathroom and some of the unique innovations that have changed what we commonly would find in one of our most used rooms.
How Invention Production is Rethinking a Room in Every Home
A unique approach to the toilet
The most common device in our bathroom that we use every single day, the toilet. Three students from the University of the Arts London came up with a unique approach to the common toilet in the Toilet of the Future Competition which was organized by a plumbing supplier. They created a wellbeing toilet which includes a built-in screening system that can analyze your waste to check for biomarkers, indicators of diseases and nutritional deficiencies, right from your own home.
A shower that saves energy
Another common device found in every bathroom is the shower. We use this to keep us clean without thinking too much into it. Orbital Systems‘ latest invention production has created a shower that has rethought how much water and energy we use in our daily shower which is about 150 liters of water on average per 10-minute shower. Their approach to the shower head recycles water so you only use five liters of water per shower. Not only saving the environment, but also cutting down on our lengthy water bills.
The world’s most hygienic toilet brush
Keeping our bathroom clean is a top priority, and a toilet brush is one of those staple cleaning devices you’ll find beside the toilet in almost any bathroom. Looblade has rethought the typical, cheap toilet brush that collects bacteria for years in our bathrooms. Their invention production has led this innovation to be made from a quick-dry material that is also anti-germ. Gone are those icky brushes that you question constantly how clean they actually are.
Seeing invention production not just focus on creating new products, but improve upon products we use every day is incredibly exciting for us at MAKO. We can’t wait to see what’s next!
