Touch and Feel / Water Machine

Touch and Feel
Touch and Feel

This is a touch water machine with better touch experience.
The core of the design is to bring more resonance, better and special experience to the touch products.
The first dimension added to touch is temperature. User can touch and adjust the temperature of water on the top of the machine, feeling the realtime feedback from the temperature it deliver.
The second point is the touch of air. With the combination of touch and infrared sensor, water outcomes as soon as the cup reach and it stops when user try to reach the cup and get it back.
The third one is the touch of water. The light on the mirror just look like ripple on the lake.
