There isn’t enough loo-related technology in this country, as opposed to Japan, where every public convenience is staffed by robots. Probably. But James Dyson isn’t settling for that. The Brit inventor has announced a new hand dryer that "pumps room-temperature air through a tiny slot at 400mph".
He claims it’ll dry both your hands in ten seconds, freeing you from those embarrassingly damp post-pee handshakes when you return to your pub table and somebody new has arrived. Come on, that’s not just me. It’s called the Airblade – nice name – and apparently uses 83% less energy than most hand dryers. It goes on sale next month for £549 plus VAT.
