Dyson Multiplier Fan AM01DM30WS
Shop: David Jones (AU$359)
Without the description below the photo one might think its a mosquito repeller or quite oddly, a fan stripped of its blades left lying around. Aunt Sally acquired this at David Jones and had it delivered from Sydney to Manila.
On the manual it said, "A 30cm blade-less fan in white and silver utilizing Dyson's Air Multiplier technology to generate smooth, uninterrupted airflow with no unpleasant buffeting."
Okay, so its a fan. What's the difference?
It uses Air Multiplier technology to draw in air and amplify it 15 times. Air Multiplier technology makes use of an airfoil-shaped ramp (like a cross-section through an airplane wing). Then airflow is amplified from 15 to 18 times depending on the model. Thus creating a smooth, powerful airflow, with no need for fast-spinning blades. Plus its easy to clean - nothing to dismantle. Touch-tilt - pivots with a touch of a finger.
Isn't it great how far science and technology has advanced in terms of child-friendly and efficient appliances (and makes for a great conversation piece too)..so wee!
Well, that's it for now. More chop suey soon!
