Got Soaked? You Need AIR, The Universal Drying Machine
Russian industrial designer, Olga Kalugina, has a darned clever design for a portable multi-purpose dryer. It's the kind of dryer you need when you've come into your home after being swept up and soaked by a storm.
If you still have your umbrella after such a storm, the AIR will quickly dry it, as well as your clothing and shoes.
You can dry leaves, or beans, or anything small that you might use for cooking or crafts.
The sphere sits on a rocket-like perch, with levered arms that can rotate up to hold the drying object or down to be used as a stand.
I can think of dozens of household responsibilities for AIR. Drying dishes, dog's feet, underwear in a hurry.... Great idea, super design.
