Till now you have seen only magicians perform trick, this could be your chance to try hands on it too. A Dutch designer, Jasper Dekker gives you the opportunity to perform some extraordinary tricks with a tap. Called the gesture controlled tap, this concept developed for a kitchen sink tap functions using touchless interactions. The tap having no movable parts incorporates all the controls found in any conventional counterpart, but the only difference is it is controlled by waving hands near it. Everything, be it the speed or temperature or even flow configuration for that matter is controlled by user’s gestures. Two arrays of infra-red distance sensors are responsible for recognize the hand gestures and a home-made water control system.
This innovative tap can be turned on by simply moving the hand along its side in the forward motion and backward to turn it off. A swipe on the right side activates the hot water, while doing the same on the left side lets cold water out. Speed of gesture determines intensity of waterflow and for changes from a single stream to shower-like flow by moving the hand horizontally away from the tap.
