If you thought all that water in the bath­room was go­ing down the drain, then Vi­vian Black not only thought about it but went one step for­ward. Vi­vian Black is mainly re­mem­bered be­fore this for his suc­cess in com­mer­cial­is­ing Bri­tish in­ven­tor Trevor Baylis’ hand-cranked ra­dio for use in re­mote ar­eas of Africa. Black em­ployed the power cre­ated by the mo­tion of water to run a ra­dio. The ra­dio, which he has named the H20, uses a mi­cro-tur­bine tech­nol­ogy to gen­er­ate power from the flow of water when the shower is turned on. The wa­ter­proof in­stru­ment clips on to the water pipe that runs up to the show­er­head. The ra­dio is man­u­fac­tured by the Tango Group. Thanks to them, bath time can well mean Kolaveri time.
