Otis / Self-Filling Water Boiling Jug


Otis is a self-filling, water boiling jug; it provides a revolutionary new method of boiling water in the home.

The strong need to reduce water consumption drove the evolution of Otis. Installed directly into kitchen worktops, Otis connects to a mains water supply.

An induction module heats water as it fills the vessel, this module interfaces with the flow of the water using existing technologies that ensure Otis meets all standards and safety requirements.

Otis is designed to embrace wireless technology, allowing it to interface with specially designed smartphone applications enhancing the users experience and functionality.
