Dyson Air Multiplier desktop cooler
Review Dyson, famous for its innovative vacuum cleaners and industrial hand dryers, has seemingly combined the two designs to create its first desk fan, the Dyson Air Multiplier.
Cock-a-hoop: Dyson's Air Multiplier
Being Dyson, impressive aesthetics are to be expected and this unique design doesn’t disappoint. Despite looking like an oversized TV aerial, adept for sucking up a Channel 5 signal in remote areas of Scotland, the appearance is a refreshing change from convention.
The fact I can put my hand through it without losing a finger or two only adds to the novelty.
With a small footprint and the huge space left by the lack of clunky blade covers, it looks fantastic on a desk, taking up minimal amounts of room. Only the cheap-feeling, silver-sprayed plastic casing lets the look down.
It's nothing massively groundbreaking though. Revamped with a modern feel, all the standard features of a fan are here. There's a button to regulate oscillation, a dial for output strength and the base can be tilted back and forth. What did you expect?
No danger to digits
Still, I haven't had my hands on a fan this flashy since I was backstage at a Snoop Dogg gig. But we all know it isn't how they look, it's how they blow, and the Dyson is no exception.
