Smart Glass Faucet / Products and Applications

Smart Glass Faucet
Smart Glass Faucet

How can we be more sensitive about our water consumption? The Smart Glass Kitchen Faucet is giving consumers full feedback about their behavior of consuming tap water by using thermochromic and electrochromic smart glass. The amount and temperature of running water is affecting the transparency and color density of the installed smart glass layers. This visual effect is an inspiring appeal to a responsible water consumption.
A contactless, sensor-based adjustment of the water amount and temperature is ensuring a hygienic and economical interaction.
