Ultrasonic Drying

Ultrasonic Dryer looks at slashing your electricity bills drastically by regulating energy consumption and methodology. The dryer uses an ultrasonic atomizer system in place of the traditional electric heating system to vaporize residual moisture in clothes. As a result, mist is formed and can be cooled and collected as recycled water. The idea looks good enough to explore and I love the user-friendly design, which brings the machine drum up to the user-height rather than them bending down to load in the clothes.

    Does this have actual research behind it, or is it all talk and some renderings?

  • Rob says:

    Echo. I’d like to see some data to back up this World-Of-Tomorrow-esque claim.

  • Jimmy C says:

    Really, it doesn’t need any data at all, it’s just a really good design. YOu guys are commplaining about something that was never guaranteed to you in the first placce.

    Doesn’t need any data? Who says a clothes dryer based on an “ultrasonic nebulizer’ actually works?

    Without any data or research it is just another scifi concept drawing with some tech talk thrown in.

  • Peter says:

    Why don’t you google Ultrasonic Nebulizer and see for yourself?

  • Quintin says:

    I know what an ultrasonic nebulizer is. My question still stands.

    A clothes dryer isn’t some kind of container with water. In all these nebulizers, the water comes in direct contact with the nebulizer. In this, that doesn’t happen.

    • Peter says:

      Yes it does happen Quintin, the clothes are tumbled against the ultrasonic transducer, the water is atomized and a fan sucks it out of the clothes chamber. This not rocket science Quintin so please spare us your annoying stupidity.

    Theres no reason for this not to work. ..so much cynicism for something that was just meant as a design project anyway.
