It’s hard to get excited about a desk fan when air conditioning does a far better job at cooling a room. But that’s because desk fans don’t usually have a camera located in the center that can track targets, automatically aiming the breeze where it’s needed. Designed by Keita Watanabe, the fan, in its current technological state, can track special flag targets, turning to direct the air wherever it finds one in a room. The flags also have a different symbol on the back, letting the fan know if it should be on or off. This gives a user complete control of the fan without the need for a powered remote, but more importantly, by placing these flags around a room, it can tell it when to blow and when not to blow when set to sweep back and forth.
