A perfect mix of high-tech and low-tech: This is the automated sink in the newly-remodeled bathroom on my floor. The faucet and soap dispenser are automated, but the towels are not, you can get soap without dripping water all over the formica, and the automated faucet does have temperature control.

The designer of this bathroom knew that water and soap work well being automated, but towels don’t.
