Germany’s Hansa [2] has come out with these futuristic bathroom fixtures. The metal spigot has the top portion removed, creating a visible canyon for your water to run through. As if these rectangular minimalist fixtures weren’t beautiful enough, they also feature temperature sensitive LEDs lining the walls of the canyon, which illuminate the water in different colors depending on the temperature of the water (red=hot, pink=warm, blue=cold). Not that anyone really needs colored light help to discern the temperature of running water – but its a cool feature none-the-less. Who knows, maybe it could help prevent those nasty surprises you sometimes get when washing your hands or stepping into the bath a little too quickly.
