Here’s Why We Don’t Need Water Faucets Controlled by Touchscreens
Look, I’m all about smart products. But not everything needs to be smart. And not just because it’s making me feel dumb.
A guy tweeted a picture of a smart water faucet in a public bathroom last week . . . and it’s going viral because it shows why we REALLY don’t need that.
The faucet is controlled by a touchscreen, but it won’t pour any water . . . because the screen has an error message about, quote, “Internal storage running out.”
Look at this ridiculousness!
I am not cut out for this modern world, especially one where touchscreens have replaced the reliable technology of a “handle” in bathrooms—and where you can’t wash your hands because “internal storage running out” means “applications & system functions may not work well” pic.twitter.com/WjsbyJV9O7
