The Second Shower Knob

One of the most annoying things when you step into a shower is having either freezing cold or scalding hot water hit you. It requires a certain level of flexibility to curve your body around the water stream in order to adjust the temperature. After this happened to me for the 8,443rd time, I thought about it and came up with the answer:

A second shower knob.

This one would be placed on the exact opposite wall, so that you’d be facing it if the water was hitting your back. This way, you can step into a shower knowing that if it’s too hot or cold, you can just step forward–away from the water–and adjust the temperature.
