Default Touchscreen Faucet Concept: Practical or Practically Useless?


We're not entirely sure what to make of the Touchscreen Interface Water concept on Yanko Design, so we're asking you, our readers, what do you think about it? We dig the touchscreen controls, we're just not sure they're appropriate on a water faucet, especially one as funky looking as this. However, we do concede that there may be some functional applications for something like this.

For instance, expand the concept to include inputs for measurements. If you need exactly 1 cup of water, for instance, you could input the measurement and have it dispensed straight to your mixing bowl instead of a measuring cup. As it stands, the concept is limited in what it can do.

"On the top of this device, to the right and left of the nozzle in the center, are the touchscreen controls for the release and control of the water this stopper is meant to work with," designer Stefano Ollino explains.

View more pictures here and then tell us what you think in the comments section below.

That's pretty cool actually, though I don't see it being particularly useful. I prefer mechanical buttons; my monitor has touch-sensitive buttons, and they're just annoying.

That is nifty. If they did release something with measurement options then I would totally put that on my sink.
