Breaking Conventions. Or Not.


This is interesting – the latest Dyson airblade looks very, very like a conventional hand dryer. It’s white. You put your hands underneath it. It blows down. I wonder if it’s changed because the people who use it didn’t like it, or the companies who bought them and installed them wanted something more conventional? Or something else?

  1. The attraction of hand dryers is that you don’t touch anything = hygienic.

    The old Airblade was so powerful that it was hard to keep your hands in the middle without being blown into and touching the side. That always annoyed me. Mildly. Looked great, sounded great, but the UX was less than 100% on the hygiene front.
