i:wing Fan Flaps To Generate Breezes

By Andrew Liszewski

Instead of using spinning blades which can generate a lot of noise, the i:wing features a set of large wings which gently oscillate back and forth (or flap) like a bird or insect to create air movement in a room. While it’s not the type of fan you can just stand in front of to quickly cool down, it makes up for it with lots of style points and the fact that it’s nearly silent when running. And while I’m sure it started life as just a concept design, the bionic motion website does include a sales section which promises to one day provide a list of dealers where you can actually buy one.

    It does not look very masculine, so I stick to the old style of table top fans.

    The real downside to this is the fact that you can't be Darth Vader with this fan. It's no fun, it's for stuck up, i everything, super white and black clean lofts. bleh
