You’ve probably seen the tabletop version of the Dyson fan; tonite in SoHo James Dyson himself was on hand to introduce the two new floor models. The AM02 Tower and AM03 Pedestal floor standing fans be available exclusively at the Conran Shop and cost $449.99 each.

Verbage from the press release:
As the majority of the U.S. heads into the summer months, Dyson has the answer for
sweltering temperatures with the latest iteration of Dyson Air Multiplier™ technology.
The AM02 Tower and AM03 Pedestal floor standing fans are designed to create
uninterrupted breeze of cool air in larger spaces.
Dyson first introduced Air Multiplier™ technology in October 2009 offering the first real
innovation in more than 125 years. Dyson’s patented technology replaces fast spinning
blades and awkward grilles with loop amplifiers. The machines draw air in at the base
through a mixed flow impeller – a combination of the technologies used in turbochargers
and jet engines.
From the base the air is forced into the loop amplifier and accelerated through the
annular aperture, creating a jet of air that hugs the airfoil-shaped ramp. While exiting the
loop amplifier, the jet pulls air from behind the fan into the airflow (inducement). At the
same time, the surrounding air from the front and sides of the machine are forced into the
air stream (entrainment), amplifying the flow to create a constant smooth air stream.
Unlike conventional fans with limited settings, Dyson Air Multiplier™ fans can be infinitely
adjusted up or down. The new tower and pedestal fans offer precise airflow and
oscillation control and can be adjusted remotely. Air Multiplier™ technology is an
easier to clean and safer way to keep cool this summer.
About the Dyson AM02 Tower fan:
The oval shaped tower fan stands less than three feet tall and is barely a foot wide.
Drawing in nearly nine gallons of air per second, the machine amplifies the air
16 times creating a smooth and cooling airflow.
About the Dyson AM03 Pedestal fan:
With an extension of 8.6 inches, AM03 is the largest of all Dyson Air Multiplier™ fans
and takes in nearly nine gallons of air per second, amplifying the air by 18 times
for use in larger areas including living rooms and offices.
Both AM02 and AM03 Air Multiplier™ fans retail for a MSRP of $449.99 and
are available on Dyson.com and select retailers across the U.S.
