Moving away from the norm now, we have some details on a new ‘innovative’ way to wash and dry your hands at the same time, thanks to another ingenius idea from Dyson. The heater and hoover specialists have introduced the Airblade Tap, which combines a tap and drying function in a single enclosed tap unit.
It looks very slick as you can imagine and is due to go on sale in February throughout the UK and other parts of the world. The design, created by British entrepreneur Sir James Dyson has been built in a way which will supposedly save the consumer money in the long run on energy costs, as opposed to using paper towels.
The Airblade Tap is the newest entry in the Airblade series of products that you have probably used in public bathrooms, but the £1000 price tag to snap one up may not be too desirable to those who think it is just a fancy way to wash and dry your hands. The included video from the BBC shows the clever motor and sensor technology used though, which will actually detect when to start the water and when to start the drying action.
The Airblade Tap can apparently dry your hands completely in 14 seconds, but are you interested in buying one with a price tag of £1000. You should expect to see these pop up in airports and sports stadiums through 2013 for a chance to ‘try before you buy’. Watch a demonstration from Mr Dyson below and let us know what you think about it.
