$260 buys a lot of cheaper fans. The design is very slick, and nothing new - there are such things as venturi air circulators in industrial applications, but nobody's ever made one into a desktop fan.

Somebody will buy it. They're willing to shell out $400 for the Bose desktop radio, somebody's bound to have enough money to think this is a smart investment.

I have a great desktop fan. Big, black, cast iron body, gaps in the grille so big a kid could stick his whole hand in there (and let that be a lesson to him!). It's about 50 years old, cost me $30 and about an hour and a half to refurbish back to good working, non rattly condition.
