    Does anyone know where the water that the Airblade "scrapes" off your hands goes?
    In their marketing bumph they comment on the fact that conventional driers deposit it all over the floor and the user, but I cannot see any drain in the Airblade itself. This does suggest that they just dump it on the floor. :blush:

    Anyone know?

    It might drop into the unit itself - I remember them being a kind of U-shape.

    Whatever they do with the water they're very clever hand-driers, I love 'em. :D

    You've obviously never seen this machine work its amazing, you stand there thinking wow why did no one think of this before.

    It was like the first time i stopped in a German service station and saw the self cleaning toilet seats, which then meant my 6 mates paid to visit the toilet just to see it lol

    That is really interesting... Knowing Dyson though it will cost a lot of zeros.... I wonder if this would work with compressed air. Ever see a hose go wild? I seen one tear up earth, so it must be moving fast! :)

    Pick up this month's copy of Wired- it has a cross-section of the Airblade and explains how it work (apart from where the water goes...).

    If only Dyson were into computers. . . . I'd love to see what a Dyson CPU HSF would look like. Dyson VGA coolers, Dyson case fans, wow, now that would be something!

    The only way I think we'll ever find out is if his PC starts overheating, he takes the side off the case, has a look inside and and has a Eureka moment.

    Ali.

    They're on eBay for about £800. I don't know if that's expensive for a hand-drier, but it's damn cool.

    Thanks for all the responses :)
    To anyone who hasn't used one, or a similar one, they are really very good. You put your hands in the sides then slowly pull them out and the water is blown off your hands.
    Judging by the drier though, I wouldn't want a Dyson cooler - imagine having an 88000rpm, 1600W motor in your computer!
