The Daily Mail reports that Sir James Dyson, inventor of wildly popular vacuums, has created a new invention-- a fan without a fan. Reports The Daily Mail,
Launching the product yesterday, Sir James explained that he got the idea while developing his Air Blade hand dryers, which force air though a tiny slit to 'brush' water from wet hands.
'We noticed that the hand dryer was drawing in a lot of air from its surroundings,' he said.
'So we started to think about how we might be able to put this effect to use.
We thought about creating an air moving device with no propeller or fan blade. Three years of development plus another year of testing later and this is the result.'
