cordless faucet

Wash anything anywhere with less hassle
  [vote for,

In the old days, one could only talk on a phone if one was near a phone jack. And stereos had to be plugged in rather than battery operated. Now, people have cordless phones and cordless headphones.

I recently got a new kitchen faucet with a flexible tube. I can pull the faucet off the sink and use it spray dishes from any angle. If needed, I could almost get it over to the stove to fill a large, heavy pot.

Imagine a cordless faucet. It would be just as convienent as a cordless phone. I could even more easily wash the dishes at any angle, fill a pot on the stove, water plants in the living room or even in the yard, wash the car in the driveway, or even take it in the shower upstairs.

How do you get the water to the faucet? It seems impossible, but then again, so did cordless phones 30 years ago.

Teri Pall invented the cordless phone in 1965. http://www.csupomon...inventors/pall.html
It just didn't catch on until the 80ies. [jutta, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       Cute name for a watering can.

       I know this is a joke, but I can't help but pick it apart.

       Um, you're not transmitting power to the phone, you're transmitting signal. You can't "transmit" water to a hose-free sprayer, you have to carry it with you. Might as well get a watering can, which has been baked for millenia.

       I agree with jutta.

       Damn it, I was going to come up with the cordless hose.

       ...or are you just happy to see me?

       Clip a compressed oxygen tank to the pot, open the tank, and then spray hydrogen at it from a distance. No cords necessary, but the whole thing needs to be enclosed so as to withstand heat and pressure.

       Untethered elation, actually.
