The twitter account Sho Sawada (Shao1555) recently shared a video capturing a toilet sink at a McDonald’s in Japan that has a function that allows you to disinfect your phone while washing your hands. WOSH is a sustainable hand-washing stand that features a reusable water based sink. In addition, it uses a hydrological cycle system and deep ultraviolet lights to sanitize your smartphone. The cutting-edge system was developed by the Japanese company WOTA.

According to WOTA, WOSH can sterilize your smart phones by 99.9% in just 30 seconds. Simply insert your smart phone into the system, and it will immediately and automatically start cleaning your phone.
As Sho Sawada shows, a number of McDonald’s in Japan have installed WOSH attracting many customers who use and appreciate the new tech system.
Look at the hand-washing stand, it is easy to see that WOSH is very eco- friendly as it can save a lot of water. The water after being used will be sanitized to reuse later. WOTA claims WOSH can save 98% of the water it uses. “Just 20 liters is enough to wash more than 500 times. WOSH cuts down waste water and is mindful of sustainability.” This also means WOSH can be installed even at places that have no water supply.
In addition, due to its neat design, WOSH doesn’t take up a lot of space which makes it easily be placed anywhere as long as there is a power source nearby.
As claimed by WOTA, the core technologies used for WOSH are custom AI and water quality sensors which ensure high water quality. As a result, viruses and impurities are removed through three filters. “Sensors feed AI that constantly monitors and controls the water quality and system.” says WOTA.
