senseball / universal faucet

senseball
senseball

We all had a surprising experience when hot water suddenly came out of the faucet. Then what if the faucet lets you know the expected water temperature before you turn it on? By touching the 5 balls(sensor), you can feel the water temperature before using it. When you slightly push the handle, the water comes out. Children with weak grasping power, elderly or disabled can easily control. Also, it was designed fairly widely in order to make people with physically challenged people easily run the water. These 5 balls help a person who is visually impaired provide expected water temperature by touching the ball with the skin at the sametime.
