Robo-Washer Hopes To Revolutionize Hand Washing

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Donald Vitez is an inventor who claims that he has revolutionized the way that people can wash their hands with the “robo-washer”.

This invention will soap, rinse and dry your hands all at once.

“All you do is put your hands inside, robo-washer will sense your hands, after sensing your hands it will dispense water, it will then dispense soap and it will do the drying for you. So it’s basically a car wash for your hands,” Vitez explained.

He recently brought his latest invention to a local fair where he says kids and parents were lined up to try out this latest sanitation technology.

Vitez said that his invention isn’t necessarily made for the home, but he’s hoping the robo-washer appeals to businesses.

“It’s made to wash your hands in a public setting, it only consumes one-cup of water per cycle and if you compare that to the conventional means of washing your hands it takes 6.5 to ten cups of water to do the same thing,” he said.

He is attempting to raise money to produce the robo-washer using kickstarter.com but he has a long way to go.  As of May 12, 2014, he had only raised $70 of the $100,000 he hoped for to start production.  He does claim that companies like Virgin Atlantic Airlines and Boeing are interested in possibly using this latest technology on their aircraft.
