Aero-acoustic engineers and scientists at Dyson gave a high tech makeover to a hair dryer

After four years of development efforts from 103 engineers, $71 millions in investment, 600 prototypes, 100 patents pending and 1,300 miles of hair tresses, the classic hair dryer got a new makeover thanks to Dyson, a home appliance company known for giving traditional objects, such as fans and vacuum cleaners, a second, highly engineered life.

With a hefty price tag of $400, the hair dryer comes equipped with the smallest and lightest 13-blade motor that spins 110,000 per minute, ensuring not only the ultrafast drying time, but also inaudible frequency, making the hair dryer surprisingly quiet.
