Raining in your cup / refrigerator water dispenser

Raining in your cup
Raining in your cup

When we stand in front of the refrigerator every day to drink water, we always repeat the tedious wait. also whenever water is released from the water purifier, only mechanical sounds are made. ‘Raining in your cup’ provides healing of the mind and special experiences drinking water. when you touch Raining Mode, from the panel, water pours into the cup and you can hear the actual rain sound . when you touch Snowing Mode, ice falls into a cup and you can hear snow sound. while drinking water, you can experience healing and feel the gratitude of nature through the sounds of nature's value that does not change.
