Yes Isaac Jumba Platform like this one will create a connection between different peoples who work on solutions for the Coronavirus with people who want to help. I am really amazed that fighting common enemy will bring best in us no matter who we are... And I think creating this inspiration is the target of this platform.
Good question, well, first I developed this project for conservation of water https://conservationx.com/project/id/458/everydropletmatters to save every drop of water as much as possible. Meaning wether the faucet is activated by red light or Mechanical turned motion, it involves in end users need for turning on and off the faucet. The red light is better than the ordinary mechanical turning faucet but it still works based on the need of end users turning on and off the faucet. This mechanism does not relate end users turning on and off the faucet that when there is an object between the tip of the faucet and the sink it discharge water and if there is no object it turns off. Plus the mechanism can not have false signal to turn on the faucet when there is a person near by. Thank you for your question and if there is still confusion, I hope it will be clear when the prototype is built. Also this project is about offering additional comfort for end users to save water
