Two Larger Dyson Air Multiplier Fans Appear With Extra Power

Less than a year ago, Dyson changed the face of the humble home fan completely—not just giving it a bit of plastic surgery, but completely removing its blades. Now, two much larger, powerful fans have blown in.


The AM02 Tower stands 1m tall and measures 19cm wide, with 33L of air being taken into the fan each second, and then amplified 16 times using their "Air Multiplier" technology which thrilled and chilled us in our review. It's available in iron, blue and silver, or just silver.

The second model for today, the AM03 Pedestal fan, is the even larger option, transforming 33L of air into something 18x stronger: wind. The actual pedestal technology has been redesigned as well, with a spring mechanism now allowing for the height and angle to be altered. It can stand up to 1.4m in height, and will be available in either white or silver. Both the AM02 and AM03 come with remote controls, too.

Unfortunately I've only got the UK pricing for now, but will update this once I hear about the US price-tags. Both new models will cost £300 in the UK, with the original model coming in at £200. Doesn't inventor James Dyson look windswept and not at all sweaty in the photo above? [Dyson]

UPDATE: Both the AM02 and AM03 will cost $450 in the States. No word on when they'll blow into town though.

The thing that kills me about these fans is the oh-god-he's-so-earnest video he cut explaining the technology. "Normal fans," he explain (in words pretty close to this), "use blades which buffet the user. Our new Air Multiplier fans use an airfoil design which reduces buffeting."

You know, I could handle the whole "You're losing suction!!!" thing with the vacuums - that's based on an effect I've actually observed. But never in my life have I thought, "You know, this fan is moving the right amount of air, I just wish it wasn't _buffeting_ me so much."
