Alien Faucet

November 8, 2008


The Alien Faucet has a spiky joystick handle and an unfamiliar, jutting angle in the spout characterise the tap. It looks like water actually flows upwards from the spout, as it would from a water fountain. The cutting-edge, futuristic look of the faucet with stark, sharp lines is sure to be a centrepiece in your bathroom.

Random pic of the week

September 29, 2008


 “Pusher” by swedish design group Form Us With Love for Beefeater’s design challenge. Its suppose to be a gin dispenser in stainless steel tubes. Looks like a good sharing idea… but it doesn’t increase the speed of flow if all taps are open at the same time… but still fun…

Ripple Faucet

February 29, 2008


Ripple Faucet draw inspiration from surface ripples. On top of the frosted ripple surface sits a metal ball. An array of electromagnetic sensors detects that ball’s position. Moving the ball in or out from the center controls water pressure. Moving it around controls temperature. The surface glows red or blue to denote how hot or cold it is. The two separate channels combine the hot and cold water to get the perfect mix.

Miscea Touchless Faucet

October 18, 2007

Its motion control interface lets you control the flow by pointing at what you want, and you can even control the temperature of the water with a nonchalant wave of your hand. In the middle of its selector dial, it shows you the water temperature in a digital readout.
Move your hand over one of the indicated sections of the glass interface. If you choose soap, this section will light up then move your hand under the faucet and a dose of soap is dispensed. After choosing a product the faucet will always default back to water. In case you just want to fill a cup, you can hold it under the faucet and water will flow until the cup is removed.
Good product for a person with 2 hands free. Ever try washing your one hand in a toilet while having the other hands holding your shopping bags?

Light Drop

July 19, 2007

 

By Brazilian designer Rafael Morgan, the Light Drop is a lamp you operate like a faucet, controlling the intensity of light with the knob. The striking silicon bulb is lit by an LED to ensure you aren’t just pouring your money down the drain…
Why didn’t I think of that…
