From the things-you-didn't-know-you-needed-till-you-saw-them department comes the Wakashitaro Water Heater, an easy and convenient way to turn up up to 300 liters (79.2 gallons) of water into a warm bath: from giving an aging relative a foot bath to making a children's garden pool warmer on a not-so-sunny day, or defrosting food. The possibilities are as many as your everyday needs!
The Wakashitaro Water Heater is basically a 65 x 392mm (2.6 x 15.4") electric rod that comes with a controller that turns it on and off, allows you to set up the temperature you want within a range of 30°C to 45°C (86°F to 113°F) in 1°C steps, and beeps if any of its sensors detects something out of order. Since you're putting it in the water to heat, it comes with five different safety features (water level sensor, temperature sensor, overheating and overcurrent fuse, and earth leakage protection). And with a floating pull-up cord so you can take it out of the water before entering the tub!
