Dyson Airblade

The Airblade is a hand dryer developed by Dyson in the UK. It pumps out air at 400mph to completely dry hands in about 10 seconds.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to have any added sanitation gain over the current, useless hand dryers. The existing dryers use warm air, which people say kill germs—but the air clearly isn’t hot enough to really kill much of anything. I was thinking that maybe this 400mph air field was enough to complete that task, but it apparently isn’t either.

At first this seemed like a pretty wonderful invention, but now I’m not so sure. I guess Purrell is still the champion of misophobes everywhere.
