Aquapeutics Futuristic Luxury Steam Shower
The Aquapeutics luxury steam shower is either the future of shower-based cleanliness, or total overkill. With two handheld showers, steam box and a massive bank of awesome massage jets, it strains to be the bath of the future.

Did I say massage jets? Count 'em: 6 acupuncture massage jets, 6 adjustable water jets and 8 smaller water jets, all of which are programmed using touchpad controls.
At some point, shower technology will catch up with Robert Heinlein's refreshing chamber (also called a 'fresher):
Mary Sperling woke at her usual hour the next day. She got up quietly to keep from waking Lazarus, ducked into her 'fresher, showered and massaged, swallowed a grain of sleep surrogate to make up for the short night, followed it almost as quickly with all the breakfast she permitted her waistline, then punched for the calls she had not bothered to take the night before.
(From Methuselah's Children )
