James Dyson, a product designer and creator of the vacuum of the same name, that kicked an industry in the pants by bringing new technology to sucking dirt from floors, just may do the same thing to the hand-dyer industry.
He is proposing that there is a better way to dry wet hands than the traditional hot air blowers. Can fast moving air alone dry wet hands?
James Dyson is not shy about challenging companies/industries that are slack on bringing innovations to the market. And so, I guess that proves that an individual can move an industry forward with a little help from the consuming public.
