Could you improve this fan?

www.geek.com... I read each ones and my conclusion is that a fan needs to be comprised of two areas where the earlier one feeds the further one with if in an instance where blades are involved; these blades need a constant feed to grasp the incoming air with easeand uninterupted flow . I'm just rambling but some of this seems to make sense to me in some measures.

Fire and/or blacklights.

Both make damned near ANYTHING better.

I would put fan blades in it and make it $300 dollars cheaper.

i cannot improve upon it. but i will wait until Wal-Mort is selling a near-identical model next year for $34.95. it's those low, low prices...

Without a doubt I could make a major improvement:

I would put my name on it, so I could make millions off a bunch of materialistic suckers.

It actually does have fan blades they are on the brushless motor in the base. No new technology, just a different way to deliver the air.

This could be revolutionary, as it would eliminate the possibility of those owning one of ever encountering a SHTF scenario. No exposed fan, the S would just pass right on through. James Dyson is a genius!

The design is elegant but expensive.

I would see if I could reduce the component count, change some of the construction materials or even re-design the "ring" that directs airflow.

Perhaps if the ring was inflatable, it would reduce costs and increase functionality by allowing the product to be stored in a smaller space (the fan currently takes up as much space when unused as does a conventional fan).

umm,,,


The jet of air travels over the aerofoil shape of the ring, creating local low pressure, thereby pulling air from behind it as it decelerates in a process known as inducement, a property of the Coanda effect. Once the air exits the ring, it forces the air in front and alongside using entrainment. Using this process, a small brushless impeller in the fan's base can power a much larger air outlet without exposing any blades. The impeller in the base doesn't actually have blades, but rather vanes.

maybe convert it to an ion wind generator so it has no motor that way it will trap dust and ionize the air etc.. Other than that its just a fan maybe charge a competive price for it you know like other fans. In value this one is worth about 25 usd max to a consumer and thats for the large one.
eta or put chuck norris face on it

You could chuck some dung into it and see if TSHTF can work correctly with that type of fan.

I was messing around with one at bestbuy, honestly I don't think they are all that great. I'd rather have an old fashioned one. Its cool technology i geuss, but don't fix whats not broken. This thing would not keep up in a 2nd floor apartment in the middle of summer in South text.
