Now, please dry your hands.
You are all super-hygienic and always wash your hands after using a public toilet, right? Of course. And then you dry your hands before leaving? What? Are you one of those millions who stand patiently in the line and then twirl your hands about under the gentle puff of warm air willing your hands to dry quicker, before eventually giving up and walking out with the drips still falling from your fingers?
These days, that problem is becoming a thing of the past. In one further small step towards machine world domination, the era of the Next Generation Hand Dryer has arrived. These super powered jets virtually blast the water from your hands in about ten seconds flat, while making your skin ripple with pleasure at the same time.
The Dyson Airblade is perhaps the most celebrated of these new high speed dryers, closely followed by the XLerator. But there is a trend, with even the ubiquitous World Dryer Corp having to respond to keep up, with their World Dryer Airforce. These hand-drying behemoths are quickly gaining a fanbase throughout the world. Just search Twitter for “airblade” or “xlerator” to see the gushing comments. But how will you know where you can sample the delights for yourself?
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Next Generation Hand Dryer Locator:

This is a community built and contributed interactive map, the aim of which is to display the location of Next Gen Hand Dryers throughout the world.
If you have come across one of these modern marvels of hand-drying, please consider taking a moment to visit the map and add the location of the dryer. You have to register to add it, but it only takes a minute. There are custom icons for the most common makes of dryer but if you find another one please let me know and I’ll make another icon for that too. You can add a comment about your dryer experience or even a picture!
If you like it please let your friends and colleagues know about it so they can also contribute.
