Raining Shower

Instead of having just a showerhead to spray water at you while you twist and turn to rinse off your entire body. I propose a shower where the entire ceiling of the shower sprays water down on you. There is a small canopy-like thing on the far side for you to stand under while you lather up. To rinse, just step into the downpour. There are also settings from Streams, Drops, Spray, or Fan (the water fans out like you see in some fountains). There is also a setting for if you tire of that kind of shower where you can turn off the overhead and just use your showerhead.

       I've seen showers that come close - 12" shower heads directly overhead. One in Denmark didn't even have a shower stall, it was just an open area with a drain in the middle of the bathroom.

       Sounds close to a emergency shower to spray off toxins.Then again why not?

       Those emergency showers are quite fun though, at least when you aren't covered in acid. I wouldn't mind having something similar.

       I've seen those 12" showerheads too. Anything wider than 2 feet would waste water. Kinda baked already... <neutral>.

       I'd love to have this. +

       I was about to suggest something similar, only by manipulating atmospheric conditions within the small confines of the shower to produce the rain.   

       At any rate, controlled raining indoors would be a great thing. I love the "raining room" link.

       Getting out from under freezing/scalding water would be harder with this wide spray.

       Well, it might waste shampoo, as you wouldn't be able to put your lathered head in a place where water isn't pouring on it. But I like the idea anyway.   

       In fact, why not make a shower in which water sprays from every side of the room, even the floor? That would be so cool...

       Or just walk naked through a car wash.
