Random Cool Video - 'Balloon Accelerator' Made From Dyson Bladeless Fans

If you have ever used any of the products by British inventor James Dyson (who also does his own commercials), you know they are pretty cool. At Gear Diary we are all about technology that is cool, so this video immediately grabbed our attention.

The image at the top shows how the fan technology works in terms of the mechanics, and the image below shows the flow-front produced. The fan draws in random air from behind and pushes it out with 15x the force in a nicely focused beam.

Using the focused draw and push of the fan design, folks at Make magazine put together a ton of the fans and an interestingly custom filled and trimmed balloon – which I assume was done to make the balloon very round and so it would neither float nor drop – and let the fan do all of the work guiding it through what looks almost like a particle accelerator!

The other thing about Dyson products is they are rather expensive … at ~$250 each at retail I don’t see myself replicating this test at home anytime soon! So for now the video of Make Online having fun is what we have – check it out!

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
