Design savvy is about clever little ideas like this. Designer Shen Di's +Shifter faucet taps on the idea of a gearbox from a premium sportscar, turning this into an instant conversation piece for the home.

The brushed black metal and copper faceplate's luxurious look ought to prepare you for future sticker shock should this make it into production. Still, it's an idea worth following up on since it marries clever design with water conservation, as each gear ratio equates to the amount of water flowing out.

Of course, that feeling that you're tied to the kitchen sink will never be truer since you'll need a sink to match, which in turn means regular elbow grease just to keep that expensive investment looking sparkling new.
