Bad Design

I’ve never liked the automatic sensor water faucets you find in some modern public bathrooms, the ones that turn on when you position your hands in a certain place and run until a timer runs out or you move your hands.

But what really irk me are the occasional installations that aren’t on a timer, but whose operation can be triggered by the stream of water flowing down itself. Those just run and run and run, wasting lots of water and with no good way to turn them off.

  1. I find the lack of basic testing in the design and engineering world ridiculous.
    Everyday I interact with products that could have been made miles better simply by handing a release candidate to a 12 year old and seeing what he did with it.
