Oh, Dyson. Why must you be so far out of my reach? I've been longing for one of the designer vacuums from the high-tech appliance company for some time now, so there was no way I was refusing delivery on the new 10-inch Air Multiplier Table Fans ($300). Dyson sent this futuristic fan for me (and my lucky office mates) to review at the perfect time — the weather was heating up in SF, and our stuffy AC-less office was in dire need of some refreshment.
Pulling the fan out of the box, I immediately thought it looked like something from another planet — a large round head sitting on top of a stout cylindrical body, this was no ordinary fan. Without blades, the fan sucks air in through the base, and pushes it out the top in one solid stream of air.
The fan oscillates and tilts so you get maximum air flow where you need it, and even adjusts to different levels of power. What's my verdict? Find out when you read more.
We've seen this bad boy on the site before, but I have yet to see it in person! The Dyson Air Multiplier fan cooled off the guests of the Lacoste pool party yesterday at Coachella, and while Fab and Buzz twittered about celeb Rachel Bilson being the star of the show, I only had eyes for this gadget once I caught the photos.
The Multiplier fan is sans-blades, using suction (as Dyson is so well known for) to create a "constant stream of air", but however it works, it's high-end $300 price tag definitely makes this a rock star purchase, indeed.
