    I've heard it isn't as wonderful as the marketing would have one believe.

    But the idea of "bladeless" seems to be innovative. Isn't it ?

    I've seen one close up. It's pretty awesome you can stick your hand through a fan.
    If they weren't so darn expensive I'd buy one.

    By the way, are they more efficient on energy?
    Delete it. They just clutter threads anyway.

    You can do that with any fan....at least twice (for most people).

    Re: Wow! Fans !!

    So....a fan creates a bunch of distinct pulses of air that maintain themselves in strange shapes for a meter or so out from the fan, but this thing creates a laminar flow? Frankly, I don't believe either claim.

    really, just now hearing about this? Been around for a couple years now... and infact, checking the posted date of the linked youtube vid shows almost two years ago to the day...

    Let's see, 4.99$ desk fan from walmart which keeps me cool or 299$* Air multiplier from dyson which looks neat and keeps me cool.

    Hmmm, I think I'll save the 295$* bucks and forgo a neat looking device. I do like the airblade things they started putting in public restrooms though.

    *not sure on actual price but man is Dyson stuff pricey

    I wouldn't consider one here at the office... at home though, it would be nice to be able to watch TV or a movie w/o having to compete against the noisier fan.

    I was just thinking the exact opposite. Most of the time, the window fan I have running is there for the white noise to drown out the (minimal) street noise that comes through the open window.

    I read a review that said it isn't quiet, just makes a different sound that may be more annoying than a conventional fan's.

    http://www.dyson.com/fans/ sounds great. But does it really "sound" good ?

    Re: Wow! Fans !!

    They actually are pretty quiet... they are not completely noiseless... clearly, since there is a motor and an an air propulsion mechanism, there is some sound... but it's more like the sound the water pump on an aquarium makes... sort of a whirring noise I guess. It's low key and not as abrasive as a regular fan.

    Guys, don't hijack my thread. If you want to talk about "WOW: World of Warcrafts", create your own thread. I created this thread to talk about "WOW Fans". Don't deviate it.

    I hear they can cure warts and keep the elephants away too.

    Not yet. Have to buy one. I need to get one before this summer. So that, I could wear it as a hat which could blow air to my body from top.

    But not both at the same time (read the fine print if you don't believe me). You can elephants without warts, or warts without elephants, but not both.
