For Dyson, innovation is a breeze. My favorite vacuum brand has just released a new fan, the Dyson Air Multiplier ($299.99-329.99), which is very unconventional. The fan uses a trademarked technology to draw in air and amplify it 15 times, producing an uninterrupted stream of air, instead of using the blades or grills we're accustomed to. The omission of blades means there's not only no noisy air-chopping, but that it's also safe and easy to clean. You can effectively stick your hand through its annular aperture and remove it unharmed! Sounds pretty fabulous to me. It also has a handsome, unfussy shape, which I like. Can't wait to try it!
