Sometimes the simplest little gadgets can be so cool, and that’s exactly the case with the DLAND RC-F03 Colorful LED Water Faucet Attachment. This little device screws into any standard tap in your sink and water flows through it normally. But here’s the cool part: it has different color LEDs inside that automatically turn on when water flows through it! Red means hot, blue means cold, and green means just right. 2-packs are only $9.99 right now on Amazon, so definitely check it out.

Now you can network your water faucets together. The Elettronico Faucet by Carlo Frattini lets you control the water’s temperature and flow rate on its touchscreen, which can also control other faucets you hook up together in a special plumbing network. Whoa!
