Electric Hand Dryers From Around the World

I love tireless photo archives of the seemingly mundane objects we run into every day. To wit: this study of 96 bathroom air blowers from around the world by photographer Douglas Wilson.

Even though that guy from Dyson is right re: these things never, ever drying your hands sufficiently, it's fascinating to see the variety of designs. (Looks like Wilson has yet to run across an AirBlade in his travels).
