We understand the appeal of kicking back at the end of a long day in a warm jet of bubbles. But it looks like the Luxema 8000 hot tub could fill an entire backyard, let alone a cheap New York apartment.
Kohler, WI sits sandwiched between farmland and road houses, slightly west of Sheboygan. It's deposited in an area once so thick with trees that early white guys had to use Indian trails to get their Manifest Destiny on -- before growing tired of all that and chopping everything down for the paper mills.
OK, you fool! Have you showered today? Neither have I. So take a bubble bath instead. With me, Mr. T! Or if you don't like me, you can try Jesus (the rubber ducky).
AU:This is old news - I featured this in T3 probably 3 years ago now. But they're still a good idea as a stocking stuffer for Xmas, although you've probably left it a bit late for this year...
This watertight, multicolour LED housing sits in a bath and changes hues according to water temperature. Simple and a lot more effective than a simple faucet mounted sensor that will not compensate for cooling off periods. But not as simple as dipping your toe into the water. If this were it, I'd probably recommend that this concept never see the light of day, but it also can be switched into a candle mode. galleryPost('ledbathsensor', 3, '');
It's not a teacup, though it kinda looks like one, and it's a lot more elegant than the Mont Blanc jacuzzi... Dutch Tub's a self-heating outdoor bath. Well, I say self-heating, but you have to light a fire in the basket in that heating coil, but then convection mixes the water around in the tub for you, and the temp is adjustable. It'll take about two and a half hours to warm 700 litres of cold water though, so if you're planning on *ahem* entertaining a guest to a quick dip in the snowy outdoors, you'd better plan ahead.
In the manner of space-saving beds that zip into the ceiling and bookcases concealed in stairways is the SPAcer bath design by Dominik Chojnacki. It's designed to swivel upright and slide out of the way when its not in use, then hinge down and connect with a floor-based drain/support assembly when you fancy a quick jacuzzi. Actually a rather elegant concept for small apartments, given the huge mass and space-invaderiness of your normal spa-bath: it'd just be a question of designing the body and hinge to be strong enough, and making that drain connection fool-proof.
