Way Over-The-Top Hand Dryer
This past weekend, I went to visit some friends in Brattleboro, VT. This small city features a fun downtown shopping experience for locals and visitors and while I was there, I ended up using a public restroom that featured a hand-dryer I had never seen before: The Dyson Airblade. Talk about hi-tech! With this particular hand-dryer, the user has to stick their hands down into the machine, which then blasts air at both hands, drying them.
I am used to the traditional public restroom hand-dryers where you simply stick your hands underneath it as it blasts air onto your hands. Comparing the two, I can not say that the fancy Dyson dryer did any better than the simpler models, and I found it awkward to use. I didn't feel that it dried my hands any faster than traditional models. And it's very expensive! I saw it listed on-line for $1349.00! That's about double what the simpler ones cost.
What a waste of money! If you've never seen one of these, then check out the demonstration video below.
