Poor Little Fish Sink

by Ally

Visualization is always a handy way to teach new concepts and get people to reconsider their habits, which is the idea behind this Poor Little Fish Sink.  As you take longer and longer to wash those hands, the fish water appears to get lower and lower.  It’ll be a big reminder to shut off that water before it causes any harm.  However, thankfully the fish is never actually in danger of running out of water.

It has some hidden plumbing that lets the water drain a bit, up to a point.  Then it’ll very slowly fill the tank up again to keep the fish safe from going into shock.  Sure, people will eventually figure out that the fish is completely safe and they can wash their hands as long as they like, but it’s a nice reminder for those that are trying to remember to conserve waster.  This is a concept design by Yan Lu, so right now it’s not actually up for sale.

So does the fish actually swim around in the water that you are using? Or is it just a trick?

So what your telling me, is I should kick the living crap out of you. Then post pictures of your beat up face next to every karate add to show how bad it is to fight? Wouldnt a plastic floating fish serve to be just as affective, or do you just get off using live animals to make a point? Not impressed.

Usually when people correct others spelling they have no valid argument.

And it is “you” , not “u”.
