Intuitive Tap

The Water Symphony Faucet is probably best for public toilets than homes coz hygiene is more of a concern in such loos. The idea is to have a faucet that is intuitive enough for you not to touch it (uggh-the bacteria!) to operate. Sensors around the mixer make it function automatically when a hand comes within range and features like water pressure and heating are adjusted via a unit installed under the sink. The tap includes a mic and an OLED screen that displays the water pressure, temperature and water consumed per wash.

The control unit under the sink includes a microprocessor for processing and saving the settings. Oh, and I almost forgot…you can actually use voice command to set the temp…like just tell it to turn the water to 27 degrees and it will be done!

    not for cat owners! cats would be setting this off all the time, good job they cant talk too!

      For cat owners one could turn down the duration of flow rate to last for only a sec. Just long enough for fur-ball to get a quick drink. Which for the lazy owner that doesn’t keep fluffy’s water bowl topped off a good gizmo to thwart fluff’s thirst. 😉

    Yeah, we’re finally entering the age when you control your basic household apparatus by just flailing your arms in it’s general direction and hoping it does something you like!

    Oh, wonderful work. I really like the work of this studio.
    All of them are very tech concepts.

  • Meril says:

    Excellent shape. I would like to buy it.
    This is an ideal find for hygiene in the home.

  • Aimee says:

    Its nice, but we have that in almost every public bathroom in the US minus the screen.

    • Meril says:

      Wow.
      Is this true?
      I have never seen before in public places the faucet with a voice controlled of temperature.

        it’s boring talking to a faucet telling it to boil my hands at a hundred degree Celsius

        why not have motion sensor at the side of the faucet?

        colder at the left, hotter at the right. if u move your hands up at the left, it gets colder as well as hotter if you move your hand at the right up higher.

        then a speaker at the back tells you:
        “you have washed your hands at 27 degrees using .0142 liters of water.”

        more interactive than intuitive, I guess

    why a comlete heating system? the simple ‘old’ mixer would be better.

    • Mukomelov says:

      Energy savings during heating is more than 30%, compared to a standard system of mixing.

      • M.S.W. says:

        Another benifit to the energy savings is the near instant tempature change which saves water most people waste waiting until the tempature was just right. Also unlike a traditional hot water heater owner would not have to worry about a water tank bursting and flooding the basement.

    Doesn’t anyone else think it looks a bit phallic like?
