The bathroom has long been the one area of the home where gadgets have not yet intruded, but no longer. As the modern age produces yet more gizmos to help you with your morning ritual, gadget expert Colin Kelly decided to road test some of the best.
For the early morning ravers out there, the Water Power Radio could be just the thing. Priced at £34.99 from Waterpowerradio.com and powered solely by water it’ll also appeal to the Hippy market with its eco-friendly beats.
For Colin it was great, but attaching it to the shower turned out to be a bit tricky.
Assuming you’ve got this far, the colour changing LED Shower Head from find-me-a-gift.co.uk costs only £17.99 and will truly add to your shower-time boogie. Colin said: “It’s very easy to connect, you just unscrew your old shower head, stick this one on and you get an incredible effect.”
If your morning bathroom time is more about practicality than enjoying your shower then there are gadgets for that as well.
The PC Triumph 5000 with SmartGuide may sound like a reimagining of RoboCop, but in fact it’s far more useful.
Priced at £160 from Oral B, this is a toothbrush intelligent enough to tell you how long you’ve been brushing and whether you’re doing the job right. For The Hour presenter Stephen Jardine life was just too short for this gadget to be of interest.
The WiFi Bathroom Scales for £119.99 from firebox.com are another gadget that will help you improve your body. Connect it to your computer or phone and it will upload your weight to whatever Fitness Tracker App you have installed. The only problem is it takes a while to settle on your weight once you stand on it.
Finally: the Grassy Organiser. Costing just £7.50 from Umbra.com, this is essentially a series of rubber shoots pointing skyward packed closely enough together that you can use it to hold all your toothbrushes. It may not look that classy, but it won’t have the goo at the bottom that using a glass tends to have.
