The first gadget in our list is definitely for females. Mirror! Designer Young-Jin Kim came up with a mirror on a stand that does not give her mistress thoughtfully gaze at her reflection while water is flowing from the tap. This mirror will tell you how much water had been spent during the last minute, day, month and year.

Water consumption is dependent on the brightness of the color of bulbs. If much water is spent, light bulbs burn brightly, if everything is in ok they are dull and you can safely gaze at a beautiful face. For greater clarity information about money spent on the water is shown on the screen (the surface of the mirror). Also, this device allows you to set a limit of water that can be spent.

The second gadget is a brick. DROP-A-BRICK that’s how the device for saving water in the toilet is called. Of course, the developers of «Just throw a brick» have not invented the wheel, but took idea of the older generation, who used to put a stone or brick in the cistern.
