Although there were earlier versions, for the most part, touchless or automatic hand-drying systems became readily noticeable just a few years ago.
"Because it's generally agreed that the restroom of the future will be even more touchless, it's assumed that almost all electric hand dryers will be touchless relatively soon," says Calvert.
"With the new systems, placing hands directly under the dryer turns on the fan and heating element.
Removing hands turns the machine off, which also helps reduce power usage considerably."
