The air blades you stick your hands in are no good if you've got long fingers, unless you either like dipping your fingertips in the last person's water or manage to synchronise opening and closing your fist with moving up and down. The V ones are better except they splatter the floor, wall and your lower legs.
The alternatives are better, but not without problems, especially ones activated by heat sensors that can't see through the stream of hot air that they're emitting once it gets up to temperature!
Much like that helmet isn't as good as the alternative, which looks like it'd leave you with jumbo scalp paper cuts from hell if you ever crashed. Also, surviving a drop onto the flat with 10 pounds weight from three feet (4.5kg from 0.9m) is a long way short of the EN standard of 6.1kg and 1.5m, or the US standard of 5kg and 2m, and then there's the drop onto a kerb-edge which isn't mentioned at all.
