Have you seen this? I guess the launch was today, because the new “Dyson Air Multiplier” is all over the place on the web. It’s funny, because as I was looking for videos to post here, they were being posted to YouTube pretty rapidly.
Basically, this “bladeless” fan consists of a stand (with a fan in it) and a big round thing (with a slit in it) that the fan pushed the air through.
Some people are saying that this is simply revolutionary. Some people are saying this is just a fan with hidden blades. I say that this guy is a genius because he can 1. come up with such a simple idea, 2. create such a buzz about it, and 3. actually get people to spend $300 on such a device. Hey, you can’t blame him.
Check out the two videos. In the first one, you see a woman with a weird grin on her face who is just mesmerized by the cutting edge technology of this new fan. If you’ll notice the hair in this video, it’s blowing as if the woman and baby were standing in front of a traditional fan.
Now, take a look at this video. Do you notice anything strange? Yup, there is not a hair out of place. Also, it seems very much like these people are either hired or work for the company. What kind of person right off the street says, “It looks like another amazing new technology?”
So, what do you think of the Dyson Air Multiplier? Will it sell?
