|Story|| Hooha is the tampon machine reimagined from start to finish. It's innovation that fights for equality while solving a basic human need.
We designed Hooha to push the fem-care industry forward and advance the entire male-dominated tech industry along with it.
From grungy gas stations to fortune 500 companies, women don’t have access to tampons in most public restrooms. Every other technology has evolved to a cash-free way of life, but tampon machines are stuck in the past. Many of these clunky, coin-operated machines haven’t evolved since the 1960s.
Hooha is a GDPR-compliant, smart tampon dispenser that you can text for a tampon. Beautifully designed so it’s not meant to hide in the bathroom, Hooha provides tampons to women when and where they need them.
A series of sensors are built into Hooha to up its reliability game. One set of sensors detects when stock levels are low so the system can text a notification to the facility manager with a note that it needs to be refilled. The second set of sensors is designed to detect whether a tampon is successfully dispensed as a way to prevent the classic “jammed” vending machine issue that persists in machines today.
