Shark Faucet Just Wants to Be Touched By Your Dirty Hands

Lately there's been no shortage of sleek, designer faucets here at Gizmodo, and today is no exception. Called the Shark, this touchscreen faucet won't devour your hands, but it will be touched by them.

Designed by Simone Micheli for Italian bathroom outfit ST Rubinetterie, there's not much to go by with this faucet other than the looks. Price, availability and just how "green" this reportedly environmentally-friendly bathroom fixture can be are all a mystery.

And while the Shark is not as high-tech as the peeing MP3 player we saw last week, it has its moments, mostly thanks to a minimalist design and straightforward simplicity. [Trendir via Born Rich]
