As a business traveler, they cannot carry everything they need in a small carrier. They need to be compact. It goes same to the Single Household. They are likely to live in smaller house and their income are relatively smaller. And the ratio of Single Household is ever-increasing.

People without iron sometimes sprinkles some water on shirts and try to iron it with hot air blew from hair dryer. I came up with an idea of combining Steam Iron and Hair Dryer at the very moment since its structure might fit so well to each other.

Iron Dryer which combined Steam Iron and Hair Dryer in one body can lighten economic and spatial burden for Single Household and Business Traveler. Users can use this as a hair dryer daily. and when they need Steam Iron, Put on Steam Iron Parts on top of Hair Dryer.

It is designed based on the affordance of existing ux of Dryer and Steam Iron.  Typically, Steam Iron is made to adjust backward and Hair Dryer have adjusting button in the frontal side. I considered using habits not to confuse its users
