Universal Faucet / kinetic elevator panel

Universal Faucet
Universal Faucet

While people are taking public elevators, hygiene becomes real important, and for disable people, to push the floor buttons is also a problem. According to research, public elevator buttons are 40 times unclean then public toilet seats, so as long as people do not touch it, people will save themselves a lot of problems. The type of control system designed here is Kinect Elevator Panel to solve those problems. Instead of “pushing” the button, by pointing at the floor they would like to go, the motion sensors in the control systems will detect people’s hand gestures and take them to the floor they would like to go.
