Look mom, no blades. The future is here. Silent velcro. Space travel. Fanless… fans. And one of them there doohickeys just miraculously showed up on my desk today. Should I dispose of it in a landfill? Should I convince people it’s a space beacon and I’m conducting a wild experiment communicating with aliens?

So, what’s awesome about it? It’s relatively quiet, easy to clean, and I wont chop my hand off reaching through it. What’s not awesome about it? I can’t do the Luke, you’re my father thing. Serious bummer.

The Dyson Air Multiplier™ fan works very differently to conventional fans. It uses Air Multiplier™ technology to draw in air and amplify it 15 times, producing an uninterrupted stream of smooth air. With no blades or grill, it’s safe, easy to clean and doesn’t cause unpleasant buffeting.

The Dyson Air Multiplier (or space beacon if you decide to call it that) costs $299 for the 10-inch model and $329 for the 12-inch. Smart dude, that Dyson guy is.
