We have a drought here in California, even if we don’t have water rationing yet in San Diego, it will come about very soon. As you can see by the above map, we are not the only place that has water problems.
To save those precious drops of water, designer Ariel Drach has designed the Bware Water Meter. Made from recycled ABS, this small device can be attached to a shower head or the kitchen water tap, where it generates electricity using the stream of water and uses it to power a small display. The display shows how much water is being used in real time. The designer hopes to include a Wi-Fi connection and log software so that water usage can be tracked wirelessly.
