Dyson Hot has dual functions: blade-less fan and heater

Dyson, the "Apple" of the vacuum and fan world announced its latest product: the Dyson Hot — a fan heater that uses the same technology as the blade-less Air Multiplier. You better believe it's a well-engineered and designed product, not to mention, expensive.

According to Dyson, it took a team of 22 engineers and three years to modify the Air Multiplier technology to become the quickest heater to heat up a room evenly, while leaving no smell behind.

Using patented Air Multiplier™ technology, air is drawn in through a mixed flow impeller, a combination of the technologies used in turbochargers and jet engines. It is then accelerated through a 2.5mm aperture (the thickness of a £
2 coin) set within the loop amplifier. This creates a jet of hot air which passes over an airfoil-shaped ramp channelling its direction. Surrounding air is drawn into the airflow, amplifying it 6 times in a process known as inducement and entrainment.

The last time around, the Air Multiplier was $450. The Dyson Hot will sell for $400 — you save $50 and get a built-in heater. This thing will be good for summer and winter — hotness. And because it has no blades, wiping down the Dyson Hot for a cleaning should be relatively easy — double hotness.
