The days of taking your phone into the bathroom to listen to music while you shower are over: Kohler has introduced the world’s first Alexa-enabled shower head at CES 2020.
Kohler’s latest smart device is the Moxie, a shower head with an IPX67 rated waterproof speaker built into it. The speaker is designed to ignore the sound of the water, so it can better understand you when you give it commands.
The speaker sits inside the circular shower head, thanks to built-in magnets. According to the company site, “the magnetic speaker pops in and out of the showerhead for easy recharging of the built-in lithium-ion battery. A USB cable is included.”
Kohler recommends using the Alexa-enabled speaker for listening to music or catching up on the news while showering. The company says “Moxie’s wireless speaker comes in four lively colors that you can share, pair and take with you on the go.”
The tag line for the product is “it takes Moxie to shower out loud.” We’d argue it takes Moxie to try to turn something as mundane as a shower head into a multi-color, shareable, pair-able, AI-enabled speaker. But, who knows? Maybe Moxie will pay off.
