Dyson’s bladeless fan is a thing from the future

There has no significant innovations in the world of electric fans ever since its inception. Not until Dyson introduced its bladeless fan they call the Dyson Air Multiplier.dysonairmultiplierIt’s quite complicated to explain how it can produce airflow that you can redirect. I don’t even understand their explanation but it goes like this:

Air is drawn into the base of the machine. The air is forced up into the loop amplifier and accelerated through the 1.3mm annular aperture, creating a jet of air that hugs the airfoil- shaped ramp. While exiting the loop amplifier, the jet pulls air from behind the fan into the airflow (inducement). At the same time, the surrounding air from the front and sides of the machine are forced into the air stream (entrainment), amplifying it 15 times. The result is a constant uninterrupted flow of cooling air.

So what advantage does a bladeless fan have over the traditional fans aside from being child-friendly? It eliminates “buffeting”, the on-off gush of air caused by blades chopping the air and creating an uneven airflow. You’ll get smooth and uninterrupted air every second if that’s a good thing for you.

Believe it folks. It’s real and it costs a whopping $299 for the 10-inch model.
