Touch Screen Displays Come to the Shower

Ultra high-end bathroom company Roca – yes, there are ultra high-end bathroom companies – has created a water drop shaped shower and bath that features a wraparound touchscreen display.

Admit it, you’ve been watching a video on your zune or been listening to your favorite podcast on your iPod before a shower and thought “I wonder if there’s a way I can keep enjoying this entertainment while becoming clean.” Maybe you’ve taken a bath instead so you could read a book or watch a movie on your laptop, maybe you’ve ruined a perfectly good Bluetooth headset by taking it in with you, or maybe you’re one of those unfortunates that thought a Ziploc bag would be enough protection.

It’s one of the few parts of the house that seldom features entertainment, aside from one of those sad shower radios, even though we’re there for at least a few minutes every day. For those with deep pocketbooks and room for a strange bath/shower amalgamation, Roca has a solution.

Designed by We Chenghou, the Waterdrop is a combination bath and shower that incorporates a wraparound touchscreen display to control not only audio and video being fed into the unit, but the water intensity and temperature as well.

The Waterdrop isn’t in Roca’s official catalog yet, so the price is a bit of a mystery, but we’re guessing it’s not exactly cheap.
