The iHouse Smartfaucet with Face Recognition

by Lloyd Alter, Toronto

Using facial screening application, the SmartFaucet recognizes the user and automatically turns on the water to you preferred temperature and flow. In addition the touch screen on top of the faucet can be used to access emails, check the outside temperature, check your calendar etc.

Around the water cooler, Jaymi said "Ahahaha! that's is so something the World should take on." But in fact a good automated tap could prevent scalding, reduce waste of water, control the spread of bacteria if it was handsfree, and more. The email access is a bit superfluous, but it has possibilities.....
