If you have ever traveled and done laundry along the way, you may already know that the shower is your best bet for washing and the complimentary hair dryer a decent option for drying – stick your sock on the end and it is dry in no time.

This leads to the question: elegantly designed as it may be, and neat as the effect it creates looks, is the sock dryer concept by KML an essential gadget or redundant device?

For someone without a dryer at all it might come in handy, being only the size of a coke can. Still, what use is fast-drying your socks if your underwear and t-shirts will not be able to follow suit? Perhaps if this becomes part of a series of similar small-space dryers it will be a bit more convincing.
