As if the 3D trend spreading back in time and infecting older films like Titanic wasn't bad enough, it now appears to be spreading outside of movies and TV. In Japan, Sharp has introduced what they claim to be the world's first 3D fan.

We had no idea the fans we'd been using all these years were limited to just two dimensions, but Sharp's newest model can pivot up and down, in addition to the more traditional left and right motions. So not only is it better equipped to send a cooling breeze towards all corners of a room, but it also means the actual fan head and blades can be more compact. And, most importantly, you won't walk out of a comfortably-cooled room with a splitting headache. [DigInfo]
