Spout Style: Hands-Free

You'll find faucets that turn on with the help of a foot pedal (think doctor's office) or a motion sensor (think public restroom). But the latest ones rely on simple human contact: Tap the faucet with any part of your body and a sensor detects your natural electrical charge and opens or closes the valve. The handle controls water flow and temperature. These taps aren't cheap, and the sensor's batteries need replacing every 18 months, but they appeal to gadget fanatics and cooks who really get their hands dirty.
