Mystery Photo 1 - the solution

It's been three days now, so I guess it's time that I provided the solution to my first mystery photo .

Most of the suggestions I received were pretty close, but not quite right. The majority thought that the object was a faucet or tap. At least they were in the right room.

I tried to help out by dropping clues and eventually ison1 worked out that it was actually a soap dispenser. Congratulations John!

The one in the photos is pretty cool because you just stick your hand under the spout and a sensor will tell the dispenser to give you some soap. I'm guessing that it's supposed to measure out the right quantity to wash your hands with, but I never feel like it's enough, so I always take my hand away and put it back to get a bit more.

Now I need to go and find another object that will produce an interesting and slightly mysterious close-up.

I've never seen a soap dispenser that looks like that. It's a pretty neat one.

I was wondering whether other people would have seen one like it, but I always assume that anything we have in South Africa is copied from products available in other countries.

I've never seen a soap dispenser quite like this one. Great photo for the game.

Thanks AngelSharum . There's only one place I've ever seen these.
