Jan 13 2009Vroom Vroom!: Water Faucet With A Shifter


This is a water faucet with a shifter. Because, let's face it, regular faucets just aren't fast enough. The shifter controls the volume of water flowing, and is completely unnecessary. Still, it looks cool. It's just not practical. Now put a sink in a car -- THEN we'd be talking. That reminds me, did I ever tell you the one about the hooker I picked up that refused to use my complimentary hand-sanitizer? Let's just say you won't see her walking the streets anymore! However, you may see her in Davy Jones' locker. I can't wait to see the look on his face when he opens it at school tomorrow!

A shifter?


Where the hell is the hot/cold control?! OMG! NO TEMPERATURE CONTROL!

This reminds me of the time when I was milking my cow Darsie one time.

"It works but allowing you to shift up the amount of water coming out of the faucet. It's a nice idea for people looking to conserve water by staying in lower "gears,""

what an amazing idea, and progressively responsible as well.

You can adjust the amount of water flow by moving the knob to a different position. Brilliant!

Know what else can do that? Every faucet ever conceived by man in the past. Except older designs also let you adjust temperature too...how passe.


I'm glad they put that little image of the faucet in the upper left corner. I never would have known what this was!

If I pour that in my ice tray will it make my ice cubes wavy too?

Top ten!!

@4 You made me laugh! Very funny!


This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake because the shadow's are all wrong.

This is exactly like that scene in the movie Never Back Down where Max escaped the gallows and was instead made the mayor of Rock Ridge. He ended up thwarting the plans of Hedley Lamarr to buy the town cheaply because the railroad was planned to go right through rock Ridge.

I wish this was real and not just a 3D rendering...

They should have installed a steering wheel to adjust temperature, gas petal for disposal, break petal for the oven, a clutch just incase you wanna use the microwave at the same time as the faucet, a navigation to find where the milk is in the fridge, and windshield wipers to dry your plates. Also the kitchen should fill itself with exhaust fumes.

So when you're kickin' ass washing dishes and decide that it's time to downshift to washing cups, will this shifter be able to handle that type of defensive water conserving? Just wondering what types of retarded-ass questions and looks you'll get when you go to home depot and ask for a replacement 'shifter' for your kick-ass water faucet.

Whoa, buddy, you better watch out! They totally blew it on this one. If they would have slapped nascar logos on these stupid things they'd already have sold out on pre-orders. Hell, convert the faucet 'shifter' into a garden hose 'shifter' with a nascar number and logo on it and the trailer park crowd has the ultimate holiday gift for 2009 and we're only 2 weeks in!

Anyone notice that the flow of water coming out of the faucet is larger than it's possible for it to deliver? the flow is about 2 times the diameter of the faucet neck itself.

This is the kind of nonsense you get from "design students" who have a student copy of photoshop, and no concept of the subject matter their playing with.

Whats next? the Harley - Davidson toilet with a kick-starter to flush it?

@15 God I hope so.

Shen Di's got such an innovative approach to awaken our senses when we look at a faucet. Very rarely does a faucet catch my attention but this one jumps out to me. It seems from my research that this was only a prototype that was never actually produced. Does anyone know where you can buy this art piece? Did Shen ever add a temperature control to it or was it just designed to spit out water like at our airports?

We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.
