Default Bladeless Fan.

I just saw this on TV the other night and was surprised no one posted it yet! This is crazy, its a household fan that doesn't use fan blades, its called a Dyson Air Multiplier, and I haven't had a chance to see it yet, but wow! Check it out!

Dyson Air Multiplier

I dont get it - it says something about a motor that sucks in the air but I do not see it in the movie...

It's in the base, the air is pushed to the ring which is used to create the actual flow.

Best Buy had one on display. Very quiet and moves a ton of air, it's a neat concept.

I saw one of these at Bed Bath and Beyond, it was really cool! I was looking at it for like 5 mins and poking at it but there really isn't any blades at all, it was awsome.
