You must have been a traveling freak and explored many places in India & World. You might have seen the machines that automatically dries your hands. Yes, the machines that we saw in the washrooms of restaurants and hotels to dry your hands with the flow of air. The machines are automatic as well. Place your hand below, and it will blow the air to dry your hand.
Measure a piece of craft paper with a scale of 7 cm and cut it into a square.
Draw 2 diagonals from the edges of the square, and mark 3 cm distance from all the sides.
Cut the paper from diagonal lines to the 3 cm mark on all sides.
Fold the cut paper inwards as shown.
Put a drop of glue on the edges of folded paper and stick it inwards. The dryer fan is ready.
In the center, make a hole using a pin.
Make the circuit using Havi Elements as below. Connect the gearless motor with Motor Element. Connect the powerbank.
Stick the circuit over the power bank using double-sided tape. Stick the powerbank and gearless motor using double-sided tape and prepare a setup.
Now, fix the dryer fan with the shaft of the gearless motor. Keep the IR LED near the dryer fan. Your DIY hair dryer is ready.
How does automatic hand dryer works?
The IR Element(IR sensor) used to detect the object nearby. When the IR sensor detects our hands, it will send a YES signal to the next Element, means Motor Element. As soon as Motor Element receives a YES signal, the attached gearless motor rotates, and hence the hand dryer fan will rotate, too.
