I was looking at these the other day – they’ve made it to the mainstream (though the price is still a bit high). This is a fan. No blades. From the makers of the giant suck: Dyson. Basically, there is a small fan in the base, that when blown into the circular blade will seriously get the air moving.
The beauty is no blades. Which means better safety (you can stick your head in the circle if you want). And from the reviews all over the Web, it seems this thing really delivers the air. Not just in pure power, but in a natural breeze. It works on a dimmer so it’s fully adjustable.
If you’re hot and have the dough, it seems like it’s worth a spin to us.
