Practicing good hand hygiene is one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of germs and the best method is to wash thoroughly for at least 20 seconds—to help with this, Deeplocal created a DIY soap dispenser. To make sure people wash their hands properly for the recommended amount of time, it's recommended to sing a short song like Happy Birthday twice. Deeplocal's musical soap dispenser offers an alternative approach that's more entertaining, plus it provides a project for people to do during periods of self-isolation.
The Scrubber requires a few electronic components, including a Raspberry Pi W Zero, an Adafruit Speaker Bonnet, wire, copper tape and a Spotify account. Once assembled, Deeplocals Scrubber boasts the ability to play 20 seconds of a favorite song from a user's most played Spotify tracks of the week.
