April Fools is just beyond us by a few days, so we’re taking the H2O Powered Shower Radio with a grain of salt.  If it is real, the radio promises to run, as in be powered from H20 alone.

How’s it work?  Just install it in line with your shower hose and the power, or shall we say force of water passing though it’s turbine, something called hydrodynamics, will generate enough energy to receive a radio reception and blast it through its small speaker.   An onboard battery stores juice for a limited time, though we’re not sure how long.

Provided this particular gadget isn’t fake, Firebox says you can preorder it now for about $55 (£34.99 UK) with an expected ship date of April 8th.
