The new Dyson Airblade Tap, utilizes the company’s Airblade technology, as previously seen in their fans and heaters, to create a faucet that both washes and dries hands, all within the same area.
Traditional taps wash your hands, but they don’t dry them. As a result water is dripped all over the place, and if you’re not one to wash your hand towels regularly, there is a good chance you’re adding germs back to your once clean hands. The Dyson Airblade faucet includes a built-in hand dryer that blows hands dry within 14 seconds. Two sets of infrared sensors are used to detect when you’re washing your hands versus drying them. Those concerned about germs will enjoy the included HEPA filter, which means you aren’t spraying germs back onto your skin.
The Dyson Airblade Faucet is small enough, and practical enough to fit into a home’s bathroom or kitchen sink. And while the cost saving benefits are negligible for home use, Dyson says public bathrooms could save as much as $1,460 a year, and possibly negate a law suit or two from a fallen patron.
