About

The idea is quite simple – Dry clothes in 1 minute!

The worst part of travelling is having to choose between wearing damp or dirty clothes. 

 - Avoid the discomfort of dirty or damp clothes. 

 - Don't waste holiday time at laundries. 

 - Have dry clothes in one minute. 

 - Spend precious time enjoying your holiday. 

 - Pack less and travel lighter. 

Easy to use:

Simple open Dry~go, place your clothes between the plates and after 1 minute they are dry. 

This product uses heat and ventilation to dry clothing in one minute. Wet clothing is placed between the plates. After one minute the water has evaporated and your clothes are dry.

Users:

Travelers: Pack lighter and dry clothes fast while travelling.

Skiers: Quickly dry wet patches from wiping out.

Parents: Dry school uniforms at the last minute.

Business: Always look your best with clean clothes.

Home: Dry clothes fast if you’re running late.

Product details/Final design:

The final version of Dry~go will be 6mm tall, 400g and cover the surface area of an A3 sheet of paper. Our current prototype is about the size of an A4 sheet of paper. It's electrically powered. 

** I decided to included a USB plug in the final design after quite a few people wrote to me and suggested that Dry~go should have one. This will provide more ways to power Dry~go.

IDEA:  

While backpacking through SE Asia I learnt how unpredictable life can be when travelling. I was constantly on the move and many times I had to make a choice between wearing damp or dirty clothes. One night I arrived late at my hotel and then realised that a bottle had leaked in my bag and all my clothes were drenched. It took days before my clothes dried in the hotel room. 

While travelling on buses I had friends who were hanging their socks and jocks outside the windows so that they would have dry clothes the next day. 

I was thinking about my travels earlier this year & I had the idea to create a light & portable device that would dry clothes almost instantly. I’ve spent the past 10 months working with designers, engineers and suppliers to refine the concept and bring this product to life.

 Progress:

We currently have a rough but working prototype.

We still need to add a pop-up handle to the top plate and a flat temperature control dial.

We will need to work with designers to finalise the design and polish up the appearance of Dry~go. Ideally we would like to modify the design to bring the drying time down to 45 seconds. 

Once the final touches are made, we can begin production in China.

How it works:

Dry~go has two plates that each have resistance heating elements which produce heat when the device is turned on.   

Clothing is placed between the two plates and the heat from the elements causes the water in the clothes to evaporate. 

The top plate has holes across it's surface which allows the water vapor to rise and escape from between the plates.

1: Wet clothes.

2: Place wet clothes between the plates.

3: Close the top plate and wait 1 minute. 

4: Open the top plate: Clothes are now Dry!

Risks and challenges

There could possibly be delays finalising the design and in the manufacturing process.
