Entry Description

This basin, designed for public restrooms to accommodate people with disabilities, features a height-adjustable function. Using up-down control buttons on a smart faucet, anyone can easily adjust the washbasin’s height. The faucet automatically dispenses soap and water when users brings their hands closer to it and offers a voice assistant for controlling functions such as height adjustment and accessing information. The smart mirror not only informs users of the time, date, and weather outside but also enlarges the reflected image, allowing individuals with low vision to see it in detail.
