This fan is not actually bladeless, technically speaking. It does have a regular fan blade array inside the cylindrical base column, there, acting as an impeller. Then the air that it sucks up is just blown out around the ring.
So, it blows a hole of air at you, using a fan blade array to do it. Oh, and it only costs ten times as much as any other fan, while not cooling your face if you're in the center of the airflow.

I looked into these a while back, pretending I could afford one. I concluded that these are the fan equivalent of a $1000 set of speakers. Most people can't tell any difference, but for the people who can, it's the best thing to ever be invented and an absolute must have.
So if you've ever been annoyed by something about normal fans, if you find them "buffeting" for instance, this can be the pivotal moment of your life. If you think normal fans are fine, you probably won't appreciate this enough to justify the money.

Very "cool" product. They also now make a heater version (it also acts as a fan by setting it all the way down to the lowest heat setting) called "Dyson Hot" for $400.

You can't talk into it and make your voice sound all choppy, and really, isn't that the second best part of owning a fan?
