Spatial Interaction Faucet Works Without Touching

By Chris Scott Barr

When you go to wash your hands, the first thing you generally do is turn on the faucet. Since your hands are already dirty, then you’re just going to get the faucet dirty as well. Now not only do you have to wash your hands, but the sink as well. Wouldn’t it be great if you could turn on the water without touching anything?

Designer Jasper Dekker has been thinking along these lines and crafted a faucet that is controlled with a wave of the hand. The Spatial Interaction allows you to not only turn it on and off, but shift the temperature without even touching it.  Convenient, and clean. Now all we have to do is wait for this concept to become a reality.

    Hasn't he been to a public bathroom in the last 10 years? Touchless faucets have been around for ages. The ability to change temp is interesting, but the whole concept isn't new at all.

    well those faucet do not work very well. Some them you have to hold your hand right at the sensor which is a few cm near the faucet. Then as you move your hand to rinse the hand move out of the sensor and it turn off. Either that or they implement some sort of timer which sometime shut off water while you're still washing or still running water after you're done. Wasteful.
