Touch Sensitive Kitchen Faucet Is Genius

It's a common problem. Your hands are dirty and you need to operate the faucet to start the water in the sink to clean them up. While you are doing this, you get everything dirty. Isn't there a better way?

Actually there is. It's called the Pilar Touch-Activated Faucet from Delta. It's a simple idea that is just catching on. Sure, there is touch-activated or motion-activated technology pretty much everywhere in airports and train stations nowadays, but this is the first time that we are seeing something like this that can be used at home. Also, we think that touch-activated is the best way to go for a kitchen faucet. You lather up some soap, touch the facet, and bang, water is flowing. You come in with dirty hands, touch it, and dang, there you go. No more crud all over the place. It makes life easier.

The faucet will turn the water on when you touch any part of the spout or handle, even with the back of your hand. It's simple yet brilliant. Why has no one else thought about this before? Anyway, this sounds really interesting, however you'll pay a lot for this modern marvel. It's current list price is $547. A few simple searches yielded $500 for this faucet. That's already a bit more reasonable. The thing is that this faucet will save you money in the long run. How much? That hasn't been established, but if you've got kids and people living in your house who let the water run, well it could be significant.
