Dyson launches the bladeless electric fan

Here's something interesting!

Clunky technology that never changes somehow interests me.

Now who's going to challenge the most arcane hold-over of them all... The windshielf wiper

The Dyson Air Multiplier fan – which looks like something straight out of a sci-fi movie – uses advancements in airflow engineering instead of traditional blades to ‘multiply’ air 15 times and push out 119 gallons of smooth and uninterrupted air every second.


Conventional electric fans have gone largely unchanged for years,” notes Mr Dyson. “The fundamental problem has remained the same for more than 125 years – the blades ‘chop’ the air creating an uneven airflow and unpleasant buffeting.”
