The Dyson Airblade Tap optimizes the standard faucet by incorporating a built-in hand dryer. A two-in-one solution to washing hands, it ensures that people won't be lazy when it comes to accepted hygiene practices.

Outfitted with a downsized 1600W motor that blasts out air at 420mph., the Dyson Airblade Tap can dry hands in about 12 seconds. Thanks to the addition of HEPA filters, it also cleans the air before blowing it onto people's hands, which is more than what regular hand dryers do. Dvice reports that the filters pick up "99.9 percent of bacteria and viruses in the bathroom air."

The Dyson Airblade Tap also has infrared sensors so that people don't have to touch it to turn it on.
