    I picked up one of these little guys as I have been tinkering around with making one of my own in a larger scale and really just wanted the upper ring. That ring is the key to the operation, and I thought it would be easier to buy someone else's and modify it from there. So, first things first, does it really work? Yes indeed it does. Have a look at the video, and you will be able to see the flame from the lighter tilt sideways as the air on the backside of the ring is pulled in. If you look closely, you will see the smoke of the snuffed match sail on through through the ring. And yes, the unit really is that loud. Having satisfied my curiosity of it really working, I proceeded to take it apart to see why there was so much noise. The ring pops off easily once you turn it 90 degrees, similar to other locking tops. Inside is what appears to be a 5V 80mm fan from a PC. It does push a lot of air, but, it's not made for silence, and it's not well balanced. At full speed, it vibrates significantly, way more than the thin foam on the robot body's feet can handle. To make matters worse, the slots in the robot body aren't big enough for the fan to get enough air. This strains the fan, causing it to whine, and the whine is then echoed around inside the plastic robot body, making a lot of noise. Yuck. Dropping in a good quality fan and opening more slats in the robot body resulted in a lot less noise and better overall throughput. Speaking of throughput, don't expect to get the same amount of direct breeze as from a typical fan. It takes a few seconds for full airflow, and that flow can be easily disrupted. The ring itself is poorly designed, with the airflow being uneven top to bottom (output is reduced the father down from the top you go). Eventually I'll take this apart too and see what improvements I can make on it, probably narrowing the opening at the top. In summary, it's not great as is, but it does work. To those looking to tinker with this, I discovered that the plastic used becomes very pliable when warmed up. I didn't get an exact temp, but let's just say that at 200F the whole thing deformed beyond hope of my being able to fix it. Try a hair dryer and be careful.

    I am disappointed with the amount of air this fan moves. Other USB powered fans move more air. The bladeless robot fan does not meet any of my requirements in a fan.

    This fan is very very cute, especially for a child. It does not blow as much air as a bladed fan but if your right in front of it, it will cool you off. The only thing I think is not so great is the humming sound it makes when it is turned on, its a bit annoying after a while, its not super loud but it sounds like a vacuum or leaf blower.
