Gest – Gesture Driven Kitchen Faucet
Gest is a gesture driven kitchen faucet, that allows user to control
the temperature and pressure of the water just with a button and two
dimensional gestures. It is turned on by any movement below the faucet
by the optical sensor while the nozzle stands on the body. But the real
magic starts when user grabs the nozzle and pushes the button.

Mapping the Opportunities
Function X – Users – Interaction – Technology – Environment
Amorphous – Minimal – Curved – Classic – Futuristic
I did further ergonomic refinements on the handle via testing the mock ups with various people who has different hand sizes.
Moving the nozzle to the right while pushing the button, brings cold water.
Moving the nozzle to the left while pushing the button, brings hot water.
Also, the user can get water spray by moving the nozzle downwards, as upwards creates normal flow.
