We take a shower with the Nebia: The shower head of the future

Tech Industry
I love taking showers. In fact, I've taken thousands of showers my entire life. So I wanted to find out what this Nebia thing is all about. My name is Philip Winter, and I'm the co-founder and CEO of Nebia. On average Americans take about eight minutes to shower. For the normal shower, that's over 20 gallons of water. For the Nebia, it's only six. That's 70% less water. What goes into actually atomizing this water so it uses less, but also just covers your whole body. I mean when we started working on this, we looked at sort of. Other areas that we could sort of pull from and learn from. In atomizing water, we're leveraging sort of a technology that's been around for, in some cases, a century. It's always used in industrial applications, in jet engines, internal combustion engines, in agriculture, always for different purposes. Essentially what we're What we're doing is taking water, passing it through a nozzle that has different geometries, and creating millions of much smaller droplets, and creates a surface area of water that's 10x a regular shower. That's how you get this much more efficient use of water, and it's a very soft sensation. Can you talk about the mentality of, there's so many iterations that we won't even see, but what went into that process as well for you guys? We worked with so many different ideas Played with the idea of different color and materials. And we sort of looked at everything that's in the bathroom and everything in the bathroom is like chrome. And it's been that way for decades and we said you know we could do chrome or we could do something a little bit different. And we chose anodized speed black to finish which is sort of what you'd see on Macbook. Familiar but different in the bathroom Are you guys playing with any other ideas of kind of like a deluxe edition, you know, as things evolve. What's going on in your minds with that? Additional features will be things that really add value, and they'll probably be in future generations so you can track how much water you use and how much energy you use. In the future we'll design faucets. So you can like pick your temperature and it just stays there. You don't have to every morning sort of guess. And I think that will sorta be the most interesting thing. So if I am like listening and paying attention, it sounds like you're alluding to like smart features built in conjunction with the Nebia. For future iterations or even the first one coming out would be able to talk to that? For future iterations. Yeah. Yeah. At the end of the day, the proof is always in the pudding of someone actually trying the shower out. We're going to check it out, but how would you describe your first Nebia experience? You'll ee for yourself. We always tell people, look you've got to try for yourself and you'll get it. What's up guys? Welcome to my shower. YOu can see over here, this is the Nebia prototype. We've seen what the final idea looked like outside. And I've gotta tell you, I have taken thousands of showers but I hae never taken a Nebia so I wanna see what it feels like. [BLANK_AUDIO] I will tell you, it feels like This is the softest shower I've had, for sure. [MUSIC] Woo. All right. i've gotta say, me coming into this, I didn't know what to expect from the shower. I thought the water pressure would not be strong enough, but It feels great, it covers your whole body, it doesn't feel like you're missing everything, and I gotta say I'm super excited when the Nebia comes out. This thing is tight. [NOISE] [BLANK_AUDIO] Oh this is dope, now it's warm. This is good. [BLANK_AUDIO] [LAUGH]
