Amazon recently launched a smart soap dispenser that assists you with ensuring you’re washing your hands right.
The $54.99 soap dispenser has lights on the top that slowly count down 20 seconds, so you know whether you’ve washed your hands for the CDC-recommended minimum amount of time. It likewise works with Amazon Echo devices, which implies you can set an Echo speaker to play music, reveal to you the climate, a joke, or something different each time you wash your hands.
It doesn’t seem to offer Amazon’s Dash replenishment service, which can automatically order all the more an product – for this case soap – when it realizes levels are running low.
Different organizations are likewise offering ways for individuals to wash their hands for the CDC-recommended minimum amount of time. The Apple Watch, for instance, can identify when you’re washing your hands and will automatically begin a countdown timer.
Amazon says the smart soap dispenser has 3 months of battery life, after which it very well may be re-energized through a microUSB port on the back. It starts shipping Aug. 4.
