Sir James Dyson introduces new Airblade Tap in Hamburg

by Volker Weber

airblade tab

Three years ago James Dyson introduced his Air Multiplier in Hamburg. On Thursday he will once again show a new product, the Airblade Tap. Dyson's core competency lies in the intersection of engineering and design. The Tap is a great example.

When you hold your hands under the middle of the Tap, it will open a valve in a unit under the sink, so that you can wash your hands. You have seen this in a less sophisticated design in bathrooms all around the world. But the Tab also dries your hands, in 12 seconds. Just move them to both sides and the water will stop flowing and a 690 km/h airstream will dry your hands. And since you never take your hands out of the sink, you are not spilling any water on the floor.

At 1399 € this product is beyond my reach. Still loving it anyway.

The Tab is the smallest Airblade. You have seen the big one which sells from 999 €. And there is a model I did not even know, the Airblade V.

Cool. But aren't these things somewhat noisy?

Diese Geräte "taugen in der Regel nicht".
Der grosse sollte hier im (Industrie-) Betrieb die vielen Papierhandwaschtücher ablösen.

Fazit:
Solange es ausschliesslich darum geht nach einem WC Besuch die Hände zu waschen und danach zu trocknen ist das Ergebnis ok, wenn auch recht laut - solange sich der trocknende daran hält die 10-12 Sekunden zu trocknen. Mal ausprobieren wie lange das gegenüber einem klassischen Abtrocknen vorkommt. Ergebnis also meist feuchte Hände.

Sobald andere zu reinigenden Körperpartien ins Spiel kommen (z.B. Gesicht, Unterarme, Oberarme) passt das gar nicht mehr.
An diesen Aspekt hatte vor Einführung niemand gedacht ...

Luxusspielzeug, Energieverschwendung, untauglich.
Sorry VOWE

"An diesen Aspekt hatte vor Einführung niemand gedacht ..."

Ich finde es immer wieder erstaunlich, wie schlaue Leser ich habe. Die stecken mal eben alle Dyson-Ingenieure in die Tasche. Fantastisch!

Auf der anderen Seite sehe ich auf öffentlichen Toiletten in Hotels oder Restaurants, wo man sowas installieren würde, immer nur Leute, die sich die Hände waschen. Aber was weiß ich, was die Leute da reinhalten, wenn sie allein sind.
