Dyson has unveiled a all-in-one hand-drying water faucet, its Airblade Tap. It combines hand washing and drying in one rather futuristic tap. First, the user must place their hands under the central nozzle, which breaks an infra-red beam and triggers a stream of lukewarm water. Next, the user moves their hands out underneath the two wings, where breaking a second beam sets off a blast of cold filtered air to scrape the water away. The drying mechanism works via a brushless DC motor, which produces two sheets of air at 420mph. According to the announcement, the Airblades can dry wet hands in 14 seconds. The motor is said to be one of the smallest fully integrated 1400 watt units in the world. The Airblade Tap can be pre-ordered today and should be available March 1st. At £999!!

The speaker pops off the sprayer when it's time to towel off, and promises to provide up to seven hours of sudsy tunes before needing a recharge.
