I know, I know, we don’t usually cover hairdryers around here. But, look, we’re down to cover anything that’s exciting in the world of tech, and this gadget is pretty darn cool. It seems to take technology from Dyson’s bladeless fans and applies that hollow-tube-like design to a hair dryer.
The product you see above is dubbed the “Supersonic hairdryer” and is the result of about $72 million worth of research and development. That name isn’t as good as the “Big Ball” vacuum, but we’ll let it slide for now.
According to Sky News, the Dyson Supersonic is capable of drying hair 8 times faster than traditional hair dryers, all without frying it to a crisp and without waking up the baby. “I challenged Dyson engineers to really understand the science of hair and develop our version of a hairdryer, which we think solves these problems,” Sir James Dyson said.
He’ll also challenge you to buy one, too. They’ll retail for £299 ($435), which is considerably more than a regular hair dryer. But it’s cool, so, you know.
