- Water usage per bath = 115 litres
- Water is essential for life.
- The management and protection of fresh and salt water ecosystems, and of the water we drink and bathe in therefore protects us from drought and ensures freshwater conservation.
- Traditional bathtub = rectangular
- Fig. 1
- If we put an object in the bath, there is a lot of water wastage. The water must cover the entire rectangular surface before it is filled from the bottom of the bath to the top.
- Fig. 2
- Here, less water is used due to the bath modifying itself to the input shape.
- This is the same for more complex shapes. Here is a real-life example, where the outline of the mass is specific to whichever shape is put into the area. A more specific shape means that water is conserved. Input from materials science required to ensure a water barrier between the object and bath surface.
- A bioplastic cover over the simple mechanism makes it waterproof. A cover such as a wrap or vacuum type wrap may also be an alternative to the pin array design suggested.
- The array pin design only moves vertically and not horizontally, additional horizontal pins would be required to accommodate for 3-dimensional movement within the area.
