Voted up because it is surprisingly, almost shockingly boring.

The other link for the dyson tag is much, much better.

Hell yes, I love viral marketing for overpriced crap
|Urburos - 2010-05-25 |
All I've got to say is great job on the marketing for this. Now I really want one.
And at 0 per fan I'll be buying exactly zero for the next 10 years.
Jesus, 0? Are the blades on normal room fans really such a horrible burden? And another post says these are loud anyway. They have a motor in them. I don't understand the allure.
Also, a question for Korea: Will the Dyson fans cause fan death?
A box fan is quieter when it's on low, and when it's on high you only need ONE to blow a balloon across a large room, and they're like -. This is the stupidest invention since crinkle cut bread.
Gamara has the idea. Market these in Korea as a solution to fan death. It's perfect. Dyson fans look magical. Fan death is completely imaginary, so it can only be treated by magic. If those crazy folks even suspected that a Dyson fan might save them from fan death, they'd snap them all up immediately. The 0 price tag would probably help them convince themselves of the power behind the magic.

how linear accelerators work
I was about to say it's basically Baby's First Railgun.
Their website makes it seem like it just blows air from the bottom through a blade on a motor, and the air flows through and out of tiny slit in the loop. It's just fancy aerodynamics.
It doesn't seem like this is doing anything like a linear accelerator, which would require ionizing the air anyway to get it to react to any electric or magnetic field.
uh... you kind of missed the point there, champ.
They need to smash two balloons together to see what they're made of.
I guess I just like crapping on other people's facetiousness whenever possible.
Yeah man, you totally got the joke you just pretended not to so you could ruin it because that's your idea of fun.
Everyone here buys that.
Hey man, that was just my idea of an additional joke. Like... a linear accelerator of jokes. And yes I did not get the joke the first time.

The sound must be off b/c those things are loud as hell

I like how it just keeps getting more extravagant as it goes on.

This is how space travel in "Freelancer" works. Except for the occassionally bumping into the ring part. That would have made "Freelancer" at least a little more interesting.

what is ""freelancer""?

5 stars because they managed to take a funny idea and suck any and all joy out of it.
If only this had been submitted by Mike Dyson?!

I saw one of these at Best Buy, thought it looked ugly and was noisy.
|nemeses9 - 2010-05-26 |
I saw these at Best Buy and was wondering what the fuck they were for 0. I asked the sales associate and he told me "just a fan without blades. They're pretty cool but we can't seem to sell any of them, not even one. Oh but if you buy one right now you get a free two year service agreement. I think."

I think I'd sadly be more impressed if someone made a Bladeless Fan Oblivion Mod and shot the "Mother's Head" through it.

It looks like they had to shoot a lot of takes to get each working one.
