30 days of ideas – 16: Pebble Splash


Photo by Josh Simerman

When I first thought of today’s idea, I immediately put it in my “that’s just stupid” pile. It’s certainly not terribly technologically sophisticated.

But the more I think about it, the more I want one for real – and when I asked for other people’s opinions, one of my colleagues at work enthused “well, it’s not that stupid…”

So here it is…

Pebble Splash
It’s… a tray of pebbles for the shower.

That’s all. It’s a tray. It has pebbles in it. You put it in the shower.

You stand on it while you have a shower. It’s got holes in it for the water to run out. You leave it there till next time. It’s sort of self-cleaning, for the most part.

I imagine a couple of different sizes. One for those showers that are only showers, and another for those showers that are also baths. Pebbles would be replaceable, but you’d probably want smallish, smooth, round ones.

For the record, here’s my thinking that went into this:

1) It’s nice to stand on pebbles;
2) It would be nice to stand on pebbles while you’re in the shower;
3) Let’s put pebbles in the shower.

Just me?

    Love that your 30 is including some like this that are just sensory and zen. Great ideas aren’t always about building something new, but often about doing something new for you.

  2. Wow, love it! Sounds like the kind of thing that would be easy to make but could be sold fairly expensively if you did it right…
