Wow. I Repeat: Wow

As a rule, I avoid repeating post categories in the course of a week. And I have an aversion to bad illustrations that verges on—more honestly, transcends—the obsessive. But the new Airblade faucet from fan and vacuum guru James Dyson is so whiz-bang innovative that I am casting aside both these editorial principles. In a nutshell, it's a touchless, sensor-operated tap with an integral hand-dryer. You wash your hands under the central spout, then move them under the side 'wings' where they are dried by HEPA-filtered air blowing at 420 miles per hour. It's available in deck- and wall-mount models.
