    A coworker showed me this earlier today; it looks really cool. I'd like to see one in person, just to see how it works.

    A fan in the base sucks up air and blows it through that fancy ring contraption that makes it blow harder.

    The reaction videos are pretty amusing: http://www.dyson.co.uk/fans/

    These videos are suspect. If there's air coming out from the fan, why don't the people with longer hair have their hair blown back, even a little? Or did Dyson just invent some sort of air that can't be felt? [​IMG]

    The Air Multiplier technology video that explains it all is really cool.

    This Dyson dude has done a great job of creating awesome-looking gadgets that perform tasks we already have gadgets for. They look great and cost a shit-load of money.

    Now that I think of it — and put on my Tokyo Slim hat — that's the same thing Apple does so well.

    Now we just need an advertising strategy that encourages everyone who owns a Dyson to be annoying salesmen.

    +1. It's the Apple of home appliances.

    You're spending $500 on a vacuum and $300 on an oscilating fan. Do we even need a label at that point?

    Nope. We were, however, making the comparison to self-righteous Apple owners. Nothing intrinsically wrong with luxury goods (or Macs in and of themselves).

    I would hope I get credited with an assist on that.

    Haha, awesome! I love the dyson vortex hand dryer, hate the one where you slide your hands in and out. I have learned how controversial of a statement that is.

    Hey, to be fair I started nothing, nor was that a "rant" - just an observation. You all know what happens when you mention me by name and invoke the "A" word.

    My mom just bought a Dyson ball, and that thing is amazing. It makes cleaning the house fun, and does an amazing job. It is well worth the extra money, Dyson makes amazing products with amazing technology.
