Dyson has unveiled his latest clever-clogs idea in the shape of the Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer which combines the tap (or ‘faucet’ to you Americans) and an Airblade hand dryer.
It seems that Sir James Dyson had taken a dislike to the fact that when you wash your hands, you have to move to a separate drying area, inevitably dripping water over the floor in the process.
So the new Dyson Airblade Tap comes with integrated Airblade technology, combining hand washing and hand drying in one – and hopefully doing a better job of it than the crappy all-in-one units ones you’ll find on some UK trains.
The Tap has infrared filters so you won’t need to touch the taps to get the water flowing, and when you’re done your pinkies can be blasted dry in about 12 seconds, courtesy of a 420mph Airblade gust.
The Airblade Tap can be pre-ordered today and should be available from March 1st. There’s no pricing details yet, but the website includes a widget for calculating the savings that the Airblade claims to bring over paper towels and conventional hand dryers.
