Moen isn’t the only one trying to change the shower game. French company Smart and Blue showed its Hydrao range of showerheads at CES. They’re kitted out with LED lights that change color, from green to blue to purple to red, based on how long you’ve been showering.

Changing your view can relax you and bring in a surge of new ideas.

One to use on home soil rather than abroad (where you’d be at the mercy of roaming charges), this will keep the whole family entertained on long car journeys without using up your internet data.
