Sounds pricey, but this guy is a thinker...

(But I still love Bernoulli....)

The second video on this page is pretty cool...(hah! Pun intended;))

He was on the show that comes on after Letterman a couple weeks ago with this fan. He sure is a thinker! In the mall near where I work the mens room has one of his hand driers....works great... alot better than the usual one where you have to hit the button at least twice to get dry. On his there is no switch, just sees your hands & dries them quickly as the water drips off down below.

I've always thought of the Bernoulli Equation as applying to fluid movement, but I do hear the sharp aero guys designing local Supermodified bodies mention it. I know a little about these things, but when the guys bring me into the discussion my contribution is usually along the lines of "gaa?"

That fan is a cool gadget. I'd like to see one work in person though. Wonder what they cost- scary like the Dyson vacuums?http://serve.mysmiley.net/scared/scared0015.gif

Bob - Bernoulli's Equation IS for fluid flow... Remember that air is a fluid. Don't confuse fluid with liquid...

I used the Dyson Air Blade hand driers at the San Jose Museum of Science and Technology. They work great! Noisy, but they work great. They have them in the bathrooms, not as an exhibit. Must be pricey.

Huh... I'll be jiggered. Now you know why my my response is what I said above.

I have gotten pretty good at holding my chin and nodding knowingly;)
