Dyson Bladeless Fan = $300 Marketing Gimmick for Suckers

Would you pay $300 for a hair dryer with a fancy diffuser on top?

Apparently Matt Drudge would. He’s hyping the new “bladeless” fan with ‘air multiplier’ technology. So is the rest of the media

For those of you who might be tempted to be the first one on the block to embrace this new technology, lemme me draw you a picture to explain what you’re getting.


You don’t see the water flow through a sprinkler or the blades push air through a hair dryer either; that doesn’t mean they’re not there.

The only “technology” this fan uses is the Bernoulli Principle which has been around since 1783.

If you doubt me, James Dyson does an excellent job of debunking himself at the 1:10 mark below.
