iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_02 2018

Hand washing is an important way to prevent the spread of diseases and maintain personal health. But many people do not develop the habit of washing hands. MANTA establish interactive relationship with people through smart reminder, ATP scanning and interactive tap gesture sensing. MANTA can highlight the key area of the hands to wash and tell people whether they had cleaned their hands completely. Moreover, MANTA helps people develop a habit to wash their hands by turning on LED lights to remind people. Through ATP scanning and interactive control, MANTA makes handwashing more convenient and hygienic.

While somewhat similar product may exist from a functional point of view, Manta is a product that combines the physical requirements of this type of product with an elegant physical form.
