Why isn’t there a standard hand-drying method in public bathrooms? Granted, proprietors need to balance efficiency with environment (I’m guessing paper towels are the most efficient but least environmentally friendly), but still. The variety of dispensers among those bathrooms which strive only for efficiency is surprising. Have we not figured out the most optimal solution?!
Fortunately, one entrepreneur is on the case. BusinessWeek has a story about James Dyson’s quest to bring the world a high-tech air squeegee that can dry your hands in all of 12 seconds.
