A Quantitative Tap

How awesome would it be to have a faucet that pre-measures the amount of water you’d like to come out of it before it comes out of it? Designer Jasper Hou is making that fantasy of cooking pleasure a reality with “No More No Less,” a quantitative tap with pre-control. N.M.N.L. does this with a simple countdown, knowing how much water comes out of the tap on full blast times the amount of time it comes out equals the amount you’ll get. Then there’s an LCD screen for control, temperature, and a 30 second on time.

The LCD screen is even powered by the water rushing below it. The 30 second meter turns the faucet off 30 seconds after the last use to make sure there’s no flooding and to assure low energy expenditure.

    Thats innovative,where do i buy one?

  • Ayse says:

    Can we purchase it yet or is it in the design phase?

    put a temperature control on this and it should be in everyones kitchen. Think water preservation with predetermined amounts for washing dishes or hands.

    Great concept!

  • That would be very helpful as I like to cook and I could program it to fill a certain pot with water. Very Cool. Thanks for sharing this.

    Ha! Who ever designed this has exactly no knowledge about plumbing. Any handyman worth his ass crack will tell you this device wont last a year under typical working conditions as water has a nasty habit of undermining any gromit or rubber washer you try to use. In short: It WILL get into the electrical components and it WILL short it out.

    Furthermore, don’t make something more complicated when simple is better. THis is an answer to a question no one asked.

      One: Don't play to stereotypes. There's no call for your usage of "ass crack."
      Two: Considering the truly massive amount of technology currently existing that interacts with pressurized water without shorting out, surely this could be designed in a way either to outlast your prediction or, alternately, in such a way as to be cheap and easy to replace when worn out.
      Three: This would be highly useful. Technically, nobody asked for internet access on cell phones, and nobody really needs it, and yet it remains popular and profitable. Your opinion that simple is better is likely undermined by all sorts of technology you use every day that is, in some form, an improvement over the chipped-stone tools used by cavemen.

        This also will take more water to produce than it will ever save, over a conventional tap. This won't save the earth, it is just inefficiently shifting waste to the production of it. Oh, and more electronic waste. Which will seep into watertables. You see where i'm going?
        It has a great "cool" factor, its the future man! I would love it too, but joe is right, it answers a question no one asked. We aren't going to run out of water soon. And if we do, well, see my last paragraph. If you can afford this thing you probably don't give a shit about water consumption.

    or you could learn how to measure using your eyes instead of using a ridiculously over-designed tap whose construction probably offsets any environmental benefit that it offers

  • Amazing design and ergonomic features. I like the digital display. Nice work.
