The first intelligent wash basin!

Lisungi Fablab  -  Democratic Republic of the Congo

The Intelligent Wash Basin puts innovation at the service of hygiene to reduce the spread of diseases such as cholera through dirty hands. It lets users clean their hands hygienically by avoiding contact with the tap. It reduces water consumption and is available as an autonomous, portable system which can even be used at night. Some of the young people in this FabLab are not in education because of economic reasons or because of the wars of the past few years.
