Dyson Airblade

This morning I got to try on of those fancy new hand dryers all the kids are talking about. At first I stared at it, a bit intimidated, and then I finally stuck my hands in there and let the drying begin. Though it’s not entirely obvious how it works at first (maybe some better instructions are in order), once you stick your hands in there it’s pure drying satisfaction. (As a side note, if you go to the site make sure to check out the Why chose Dyson Airblade page, which I think includes a picture of someone failing to steal the machine . . . Quite odd.)
