Dyson Is Making A Faucet That Will Both Wash & Dry Your Hands

Vacuum cleaner and Airblade hand dryer maker Dyson has just filed the US patent which includes a drying feature inside this water tap design.
In the application filed last week, Dyson explains that the unit is operated hands-free, with sensors releasing water from the underside of a spout (numbered 10). Another sensor then recognises when you place each hand, palm open, beneath a pair of left hand (11a/b) and right hand (11c/d) ducts which features air-blasting nozzles in the base of each duct (14 and 16).
Why is this such a big deal? Basically it means you won't have to wait
in line at the dryer or wipe your hands on your clothes after washing
them at the sink. This particular sink-dryer hybrid means you can wash
and dry your hands at the same spot. Handy.
