XLErator hand dryerOn my recent Indiana roadtrip, I had occasion to stop at a few state-sponsored rest stops.  I was pleased to see my favorite electrically-powered hand dryer, the XLerator, installed in one of the rest stops we visited.  If you haven’t encountered this amazing device, you’re missing out.  It can dry your hands in about fifteen seconds.  It literally pushes your skin around with its turbo-charged blast of air.

I have to admit, the first time I encountered one of these devices, I laughed so hard I couldn’t keep my hands in the drying zone.  The XLerator is LOUD.  I’m now used to the rocket-launch sound effects and appreciate the quick drying time.

Cool rest stop technology.  Who knew?
