Warm On Keeps Your Bathwater Hot (And Keeps You Happy)
March 25th, 2012
The water is perfect a few minutes after running my bath, but as time passes by, I find myself getting colder and colder as the water temperature drops. By the time I finish a chapter in my book and get ready to step out of the bath, I’m a few degrees away from my shiver point.
Designers Sunmi Hwang, Hyunjoo-Lee, and Jiwon-Seok have come up with a neat solution to keep your bathwater warm in the form of Warm On. It’s a set of pebble-shaped water heaters that have sensors to determine the current water temperature and heat it up so that it always stays at that temperature.
The designers explained that their inspiration for the Warm On was based on how the magma from underwater volcanoes can heat up entire lakes or ponds.
The designers didn’t provide any information about where the Warm On system will get the energy to heat up the water or how they can be charged or re-charged. That’s a huge kink that they’ll probably need to address and figure out, but they definitely came up with a fine concept to solve a common issue.
