Standing up in the shower, what with the tiresome maneuvering to clean the parts of your body like a schlub, is kinda played out.

It seems we are not alone in this feeling, as German design firm Dornbracht has built a gadget called the Horizontal Shower that will allow you to lie down while getting cleaned up.

It should also be noted that upon seeing this horizontal shower, our Editor in Chief emphatically chimed in that this is favorite hangover cure and he's "been saying this for years!"

It's got six shower heads that can dispense water controlled for temperature, intensity and quantity. Since the overall effect is meant to be balancing, energizing and de-stressing, the Horizontal Shower allows its occupant(s) to recline on their back, side or front to enjoy the flows.

"With Horizontal Shower, we are transporting the showering experience into a new dimension," CEO Andreas Dornbracht said in a release. "The result is total relaxation, the kind only experienced by someone reclining. Tension in the head and muscles melts away, everyday stress is washed away with the water; body and mind are revitalized."

As good as all that sounds, we’d wager the tension and stress will come back when you realize you spent $35k so you can comfortably lie down in a thin pool of your own filth, but we digress.
