Universally designed faucet

March 3, 2010 at 6:29 am 5 comments

The Delta Touch2O®  Faucet works off of tap technology to be able to turn the faucet on and off.  This product is universally designed in nature as it can be manipulated with or without your hands, as long as it has contact with some part of the body.  The video posted below does a great job with marketing this benefit.   

I like this faucet but have two concerns:

1-    The touch feature is powered by four C batteries which will need to be replaced for this feature to stay in operation.

2-    I have a kitty that enjoys playing with my current kitchen faucet; this would certainly be a new toy for her!

What do you think of this faucet?

    When I first saw it a couple of years ago, I though it was fantastic product. At that time, the cost was a little more than what most homeowners would have liked to pay, but I think as with any new product; the price will come lower as other manufactures develop and market their own.
    They need one for the bathroom which would be great when brushing your teeth.

    This is a great new innovation and it is a great way to introduce universal design into the kitchen. Most people just think they are getting it because it is “cool”, but truly it will be great for people of all abilities.

    I can’t believe it! In my mail today, I received the 2010 Delta New Product pamphlet and inside was a fantastic faucet for the bathroom. It is called the “Proximity Sensing Technology”. The entire faucet is the sensor. When you place your hand near it the water goes on! There is no optics or infrared to maintain.

    I don’t know what it goes for, but waht a great product.
