Designer Comments

  • There are three temperature controls - fan, water, and seat. Including the temperature icon with each would crowd the display so I use used icons for each type of control.

  • Not happy the Fan tactile icon is used twice, once for the fan temperature control and one for the fan dry control. Rethinking a tactile icon for dry. A work in progress...

  • In retrospect, I would change the front and back spray to use a different pointy shape. The front spray is the same shape as a Delay Start tactile icon.

  • Assuming the flush control is a way to activate the bidet's ultimate function which is why the Start tactile icon is used. The other controls are more like, um, pre-flush.
