Could This New Blow-Dryer for Your Body Replace Bath Towels?

By Relaxnews

A new high-speed dryer for your body could mean you never need to towel off after the shower again.

Functioning in a similar way to high-speed blow-dryers for hands, Body Dryer is a device that claims to leave you completely dry in just 30 seconds, eliminating the risk of contact with bacteria associated with using towels.

You stand on a platform while compressed ionized hot or cold air is forced upward at strategic angles, causing water to run downward off the body.

The invention of Tyler Overk and his development team, the concept could provide an environmentally friendly alternative to towels and could certainly save shelf space in the average bathroom.

“We realized that there are so many germs, so much bacteria that we are reusing and putting back onto our bodies after we’ve cleaned ourselves,” explains Overk, who hopes to adapt the concept to make it suitable for use in gyms or public pools.

After two years in the making, the project is set to launch a campaign on crowdfunding website Indiegogo this April in order to move into the first stages of production.

Body Dryer is estimated to retail at an estimated price of $250. Early pledgers will be able to secure the product for $125.
