The most innovative fan on the market must be the Dyson Air Multiplier – a bladeless fan constructed from Acrylontride butadiene styrene (ABS) a strong thermoplastic with shock absorbing properties. At first glance it resembles a sculpture rather than a fan but it is indeed a fan with qualities that outshine a conventional fan. The steady air flow can be regulated at the touch of a switch. Safety is a major consideration of this fan. As there are no blades involved, it is suitable to be placed in a room where children are present.

Hygiene is another important factor as the blades on a conventional fan are very difficult to clean, resulting in the circulation of dust when a fan with blades is in use. The motor is set in the base of the fan which gives it stability and the repositioning or tilting of the fan in order to adjust air direction can be achieved with one hand.
