Hand Dryers - ハンドドライヤー


Hand Dryers(ハンドドライヤー)

It seems like hand dryers take forever to heat up, but that's because the evaporation cools your skin, so the hot air feels cold until the water is gone.


I spent decades mistakenly annoyed at hand dryer engineers, so now I'm on a mission to save others from the same fate.

Alt-text: I know hand dryers have their problems, but I think for fun we should keep egging Dyson on and see if we can get them to make one where the airflow breaks the speed of sound.

Previous best

New record

I've significantly improved on the solution to the n=11 square packing problem by using a hydraulic press.

Alt-text: I also managed to improve the solution for n=1 to s<0.97, and with some upgrades I think I can hit 0.96.
