A couple of years back, I came across some unique ceiling fans designed to look like the fan blades from a jet engine. Now, the artist behind these awe-inspiring fans is back, and he’s showing off his biggest build yet.
Are you a fan of Nintendo’s Kirby games? Well how would you like a fan of Kirby, then? Your wish is my command. Actually, I had nothing to do with it. This Kirby of the Stars desk fan is the brainchild of SK Japan.
Winter might just be a couple of months away, but the forecast here for tomorrow is 87 degrees and a gazillion percent humidity. With conditions like that, you need to keep cool. Sure, your office or home probably has an air conditioner, but sometimes a direct breeze is what you really need, especially on humid days.
Do you love BB-8? Then you’ll love this desk fan that looks just like the adorable little droid. He’s still got his wobbly little head, but his body has been replaced with an orange-bladed fan.
The rotund droid plugs into any spare USB port for power, and possibly to steal the plans for the Death Star if you’re keeping those on your laptop.
Check out this video that demonstrates the Fanimation Air Shadow ceiling fan. This thing is basically a Transformer for your ceiling. The blades stay retracted until it gets up to speed, then they spread out. I just can’t think of a good Transformer name for it.
This summer has been way too hot. If only you had a cool personal sized fan to help cool you down. Well, lucky for you, the First Avenger is also the coolest Avenger, thanks to this Captain America 3 USB Fan.
Let’s say you are dressed up like Captain America, however you lack the Cap’s cool shield. What can you do? Don’t fret. First, do you have a fan? Good. You’ll need one. This project could not be simpler.
Poop stinks. Most of the time, it’s tolerable – it is your own poop, after all. But sometimes, it downright stinks and makes you want to gag. Maybe it was indigestion, or maybe it was something you ate.
I’m rather disappointed in the way some of the tech we have today has evolved. I was convinced as a kid by the time I was a grownup we would have flying cars and hovercraft motorcycles like Return of the Jedi’s speeder bikes.
Way back in 2009 we talked a bit about a cool new fan from Dyson that had no blades. That fan was called the Air Multiplier and it cost a lot of money. Dyson is back with a new and improved version of the Air Multiplier, and the second generation of the device is still really expensive.
I dread taking showers on especially cold mornings. While the water heater makes bath water warm and comfortable, there’s the matter of the cold air seeping through the door while toweling off.
This is a problem designer Adrien Lefebvre understands, which is why he came up with the Air Shower.
Builder Matthias Wandel is known for his awesome moving marble contraptions, which certainly can make some noise. But now, he’s gone and taken his DIY skills and applied them to a much louder noisemaker – his own air raid siren.
After living in New Orleans for a number of years of my life, I can speak from experience that hurricanes can be serious business. So the more we can learn about how hurricanes and tropical storms work, the more prepared that we can be for disaster, and the more lives and property can be spared from nature’s fury.
No thanks to global warming, the weather on this side of the world has been pretty crazy. It could be extremely hot and sunny one moment, and raining cats and dogs the next. Now this cap with an embedded solar-powered fan might not be totally all-weather, but it comes pretty close.
