The low-tech version of the Wave Dry would be to simply leave your clothing out in the sun to allow the rays and the wind to leach out the moisture. Of course, in certain climates, the weather isn't ideal for employing an exposed clothesline -- if you want to end up with clean and crisp clothing.

The solution is Hye Kyung Lee's innovative and environmentally friendly system that gets installed against a sun-filled window. Bright beams are absorbed by solar panels on the back of it and the energy is converted for electrical use. Hexagonal UV lamps work with hot air to Wave Dry your delicates. The contraption is rotatable and bendable and great for preparing garments quickly without wasting money and resources.
