BANGKOK, FEBRUARY 1 - A machine for high-tech ritual ablutions form Muslims to save water. The invention came from a Malaysia based company which promises savings of 80%. With 1.7 billion Muslims in the world, which should pray five times per day including washing their face, arms and legs before kneeling towards Mecca, how much water is wasted in the faucets that are left running? This is the question that the Malaysian company, AACE Technologies, asked. The company has presented a machine designed to assist Muslims in the ritual, allowing them to save on water consumption. "During the pilgrimage of Hajj, 2 million people use 50 million litres of water per day. If they used our machine, they would save 40 million", explained Anthony Gomez, the manager of AACE Technologies. The product, with a height of 165 centimetres and able to use only 1.3 litres per ablution, will be introduced on the market in 6 months time, after a design and development phase that cost 2 years, and an investment of 2.5 million dollars. The emirate of Dubai has reportedly already expressed its interest. The price of the new machine has not yet been fixed. According to indications from the manufacturer, it should run for between 3,000 and 4,000 dollars (2,200-2,900 euros).
Well, I guess 'going green' and conserving some water will make up for all that murdering and killing.
At least it will in the eyes of leftists, anyway.
