__SPACER__ The Dyson Airblade is a model of electric hand dryer made by Wiltshire-based company, Dyson. It is different from other conventional hand dryers because, instead of using a wide jet of heated air, it uses a sheet of unheated air traveling at 400 miles per hour. The Dyson Airblade dries hands in just 10 seconds and uses around 80% less electricity than conventional hand dryers.
__SPACER__ The Ballbarrow was a type of wheelbarrow designed by James Dyson and released in 1974 in the U.K. It featured a moulded plastic hopper on a steel frame and a spherical plastic wheel. This benefited all-terrain use as the ball did not dig into the ground like a conventional wheel and steering was much easier.
__SPACER__ The Rotork Sea Truck is a flat-hulled, high-speed watercraft, similar to a small landing craft. Made from fibreglass, they may be used to land vehicles without jetties or harbour facilities. They were designed partially by James Dyson in the 1970s, as part of his final year's project at the Royal College of Art. Jeremy Fry was co-designer. The craft is still maufactured by Rotork Marine in Bath, England.
__SPACER__ The Dyson bladeless Air Multiplier fan – which looks like something straight out of a sci-fi movie – uses advancements in airflow engineering instead of traditional blades to ‘multiply’ air 15 times and push out 119 gallons of smooth and uninterrupted air every second.
