Nanotech hair dryer

While the science behind regular ionic hair dryers is still in question, Matsushita has come out with the nanotech version. I don't know if they're negative or positive ions (most dryers use negative ions which are supposed to combat the damage inflicted by the heat, same thing that the positive ion models claim) but they are nanometer-scale. Yeah I don't really know what that means other than that they must be really really tiny (a nanometer is one billionth of a meter). The ions are created by the same type of "nanoe ion generator" that Matsushita uses in their air purifiers. Of course, there's much debate about how effective those ionic air cleaners are and some studies have shown that they may even be harmful. Glossy hair is important, yes, but not at the expense of your lungs.

The nanotech dryer will be available this month in Japan for 18,000 yen (about $165).
