Showers account for a third of a person’s average water use, with the typical 10-minute shower gushing nearly 40 gallons of water. But a new concept by Swedish company Orbital Systems aims to cut that volume down to roughly 1.5 gallons.

The Orbital Systems shower design collects the used water in a basin, purifies it to drinking-level standards, and puts it back through the shower head to be reused during the same shower.
