AM01 Air Multiplier fan 30cm
Impulse Gamer is not just games and we've
reviewed some wonderful products in the past 8-years from games,
software, hardware and accessories but this was one product we were not
We were alerted to this product by one of our members and
after getting in touch with Dyson Australia, we had the pleasure of reviewing this
amazing bladeless fan called the air multiplier that goes beyond
the standard conventional fan.
Although Dyson are known for the
high quality vacuums, they have truly revolutionised the future of the
humble home fan. And with summer almost upon us, whether
enjoying TV, Blu-rays or video games and in order for you to be totally
submerged in this experience, you also need to keep cool, provided you
don't have an air conditioner.
Even so, ladies and
gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to the AM01 Air Multiplier fan
30cm which is the largest fan in this range.
The first thing you will notice about this fan is that it contains no blades
and looks like a big magnifying glass or something that lets you create
bubbles. Of course this is not the case and with its unique design, it
allows for a perfect flow of air, unlike the buffeting caused by
Once we put the fan on our desk and
connected it to the mains, we were quite amazed at how this unit was
forcing a continuous flow of air towards us. After putting our hands
through the large circle and even our head, I must admit that we were a
little flabbergasted as to how this device actually works.

amplify it by 15 times through the amplification ring. The result is a
smooth and uninterrupted airflow, unlike the swirling of air with
In terms of controls, the unit has two
buttons, one for power and one for oscillation. It also has a dial at
the bottom of the base that allows you to adjust the speed of the air,
however even on the lowest of settings, it does produce a rather
impressive flow of air. The head of the unit can also be moved up or
down in order to direct the flow of air. It's actually simplicity at its
When it comes to safety, this is definitely
the premium fan of safety as it does not come with blades, ensuring that
children will not accidentally put their hands where they shouldn't go.
Of course, all this comes at a cost and the
30cm model retails for $399AUD, whereas the slightly smaller unit (25cm)
retails for $379 which is relatively quite expensive at the moment.
However if you're in the market for something different but more
specifically, a quality built fan, than you definitely should
investigate this impressive piece of technology from Sir James Dyson.
