Technology overkill

20101020 Romsey Handwash Station 225x300 Technology overkillYou know those clever handwash stations, where you stick your hands in and they automatically dispense soap onto your sleeve, drench you and then proceed to apply heat to bake the soap onto your clothes? Is it me, or is it technology for the sake of it? Apart from this they have another downside to them in that the user is forced to hog one appliance for the duration of its operational sequence. In other words, whilst one person is drying their hands, the next person can’t wash theirs. A particular annoyance is when someone doesn’t finish the “drying cycle” and walks off, the dryer doesn’t seem to be clever enough to switch off and reset, so the next user must wait for the cycle to end before they can wash their hands. I have seen people not bother as a consequence. But on the upside, when framed in a certain way they have this delightful face with an open-mouthed expression. You can even see its uvula.
