Last night saw the launch of a groundbreaking blade-free fan.
October 20th, 2009
A fan without blades… How is this possible? It’s entirely possible and has to be seen to be believed!
Last night Dyson launched the ‘Dyson Air Multiplier™’ to a select crowd of retailers, media and supporters at the Ivy Penthouse in Sydney’s inner city.
At first the sleek, almost sci-fi contraption seemed a mystery, until it started blowing cool, refreshing air on you!
Rather than the traditional blade, the ‘Dyson Air Multiplier™’ uses patented technology to multiply air 15 times, expelling 450 litres of cool, smooth, uninterrupted air every second.
Air is accelerated through an annular aperture, which creates a jet of air that passes over an airfoil ramp channelling its direction.
Surrounding air is drawn into the airflow, amplifying it 15 times. Want to know more? It’s all explained here.
Explaining the motivation behind the ‘Multiplier™’’s groundbreaking technology, James Dyson said, “I’ve always been disappointed by fans. Their spinning blades chop up the airflow, causing annoying buffeting. They’re hard to clean and children always want to poke their fingers through the grille.”
Well, this new model is definitely finger-friendly, can be quickly wiped clean with a cloth and features an energy-efficient motor at its base.

The ‘Dyson Air Multiplier™’ will be available in stores from 21 October for $379 RRP (25cm) and $399RRP (30 cm).
