Touchscreen Faucet Concept: Practical or Practically Useless?

Paul Lilly

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.
