Integrated Digital Bathroom Controls

At the "Fuori Salone" 2010 show, Equa introduced E.tap - a revolutionary, integrated digital water control system for the bathroom. You have either a capacitive keypad or a touch screen integrated into the surface of the bathroom fixture that allows you to control electronic thermostatic mixers, showers, tub fillers etc. for water distribution. There are no levers no handles. The tap becomes a part of the sink, a digital user interface to the sink if you will, as a part of an integrated control system. This example is the Gorgoglio sink, where "the capacitive technology makes it possible to control and visualise water flow and temperature either via the sink surface or via an innovative retracting nozzle mouth". Besides managing the water, the E.tap touch screen "allows control of an advanced chromotherapy and illumination system as well as numerous other functions".Integrated Digital Bathroom Controls by Equa - E.tap
