Ok now without much further ado....

here's Today's Tech Trivia.

The First Hair Dryer:

 
       The first hair dryer was the vacuum cleaner! Around the turn of the century, women dried their hair by connecting a hose to the exhaust of their vacuum cleaners. In early models, the front of a vacuum cleaner sucked air in, the back blew air out, and the hose could be attached to either end.

        A photograph of a woman sitting under a hairdryer at a Hairdressing Exhibition at Olympia, London, taken by Tomlin for the Daily Herald newspaper on 20 September, 1932. This woman can control the heat of the hairdryer with the device she holds in her hand. After World War One, short hair for women was in fashion. Many hairstyles, such as the permanent wave, required heating, setting or curling - and the technology to achieve the desired results. The first electric hairdryer was invented by Alexandre Godefoy in 1890.


Now would you believe that !!!!!! a vaccum cleaner....

Till next time... ciao.....

Now we know what to do when our hair dryer breaks down LOL
Don't think anyone would be desperate to try it nowadays, though.
Very interesting, Thanks Tejas!

Your Safe Chair!

The Flat-D Chair Pad is an activated charcoal cloth pad that is placed on your favorite chair. The user is virtually unaware of its presence because it is thin and comfortable. It is also inconspicuous to others viewing it. The black activated charcoal cloth pad is washable and reusable. When gas is expelled the pad absorbs the odor normally associated with the gassy discharge or fart. This flatulence filter thin cloth pad has high absorption of flatulance odor or flatus. It utilizes the highest grade of activated charcoal available to guard or protect you for your bloating or digestion needs.



Now you can use the benefits of a FLAT-D ™ pad on your favorite chair. This black, inconspicuous, thin (1/16th of an inch) pad is simply laid on your chair or wheel chair. Uses the same activated charcoal technology as our other products.
