Default Hotaru water-recycling shower

I haven't seen anything beyond what's in the article, but:

The Hotaru compact shower can reuse the same five gallons of water for two weeks | TechCrunch

"In operation, it holds five gallons of water. According to the co-founders, a family of three can each take a daily five-minute shower using the same five gallons of water for up to two weeks.
It does require a power source, but Riki and Ryo told me that you can hook it up to a car for basic power to run it (unheated water). To power the water heater, a generator or AC hookup is needed."

Hotaru's site is Hotaru : Off-Grid Water Cycle System For Future.. Neither their site nor its intro video () explain much.

Interesting. The Earth Cruiser expedition vehicle has a high performance water filtration system the allows you to draw water from lakes, ponds, rivers, etc. and fill your fresh water tank with purified water. It also allows you to reuse grey water by cycling it through the water filter back into the fresh water tank.
