We are now living in an age where a lot of our household accessories and gadgets are getting smarter, although sometimes we have to wonder if making everything smarter is really necessary. However, if you’re looking for more ways to make your home smarter, Amazon has announced its new Smart Soap Dispenser.
Yes, you read that right, even soap dispensers are now getting smarter. We’ve seen electronic dispensers that work when you put your hand near to it, but this takes it one step further. It is an Alexa-enabled device which means that you can pair it with an Echo device and create a routine for it.
The goal of this soap dispenser is to encourage people to wash their hands for 20 seconds and it comes with a series of LEDs that counts down to zero. However, if that’s too boring for you, you can pair it with an Echo device and have it play a song or tell you a joke to help make that 20 seconds pass by faster.
If this sounds rather extra, it is. It is also kind of expensive at $55 where you could easily just buy a bar of soap for a fraction of that price, but hey, if you have the cash to spare and want something that’s kind of novel and semi-useful, then perhaps this could be worth checking out.
