The average household uses 32 liters of water each day. The Altered:Nozzle aims to reduce that to 98% using a new water-saving design. According to the creators it will reduce water usage without sacrificing functionality.
As water flows through the faucet the nozzle breaks it up into millions of tiny droplets. A traditional faucet puts out much more water, but it comes out in a constant stream, that splashes off anything in its path. You can make contact with all the water coming out of the Altered:Nozzle because of its bigger surface area as tiny droplets.
With a twist of the nozzle, it outputs a more directed spray. This uses more water, but it lets you do things like fill up a container without waiting. It still uses 75% less water than a regular tap.
The project is on Kickstarter, and it’s already smashed through its original goal of $30,000. As of now, it’s over $350,000. If you want one of your own, it’ll cost you about $44 and it ships in December.
