Dyson AirBlade

Post by Mark

Ok this might sound weird but one of the things I remember the most about Terminal 5 at London Heathrow Airport was the hand dryer in the bathroom (video above although it really doesn’t do it justice). It was just incredibly powerful, like it must have been connected to an extra airplane jet engine they had lying around because it was just vicious.

I never found another hand dryer as powerful until recently while I was in Lebanon I was washing my hands in a bathroom at a mall when I spotted the Dyson AirBlade (video above but there are like a million others on YouTube). Dyson if you don’t know make some very cool vacuum clears and fans so it kinda makes sense I guess that they make hand dryers. Anyway although the AirBlade wasn’t as powerful as the Terminal 5 hand dryer it looked really cool and it currently ranks the second most powerful hand dryer I’ve ever used. So I was checking to see how much it costs cuz it would be cool to get one for the house and it turns out they’re selling on eBay for over $1,200!

    They are incredibly powerful yet cool and VERY expensive. My girlfriend has a Dyson vacuum and it’s also stupidly expensive. I love those hand dryers.

    The Dyson hand dryer i have seen in many resturants in London this summer. It is strong and fast in drying the hands. Also it has indicators for the time and movement of the hand.

    Cool machines. With a simple tweak to add dust particles to the blown air, you’ll have the world’s first Kuwait Summer Simulator.

    The difference between a regular hand dryer and an Airblade is that the Airblade doesn’t use hot air to dry your hands, it uses a “blade” of air to wipe the water off your hands.

    The result is that you actually leave with dry hands.

    If you love dyson you should check out the Air multipliers we got one for our house from Paris and its amazing, it like a fan but not really!
    it gives a constant stream of wind like a gust and it feels natural and more importantly it has no blades and no sound AMAZING!
