This is a water purifier where all functions have been integrated into one simple, cane-like lever. With every push, a set amount of water is released.
On existing models, the handles for hot and cold water and other different functions were dispersed in different locations. This was difficult to use for the visually impaired who could only operate the machine by touch.
Those with visual impairments are familiar with the concept and shape of the cane; thus came the idea for a cane-like lever.

All functions were integrated into one lever to reduce the inconvenience of fumbling around with different handles.
