Rovey

Desktop Fan

回転機構を省いた新しい構造体のデスクトップファンの提案。日本のやじろべえの構造をモチーフに、ファンから送風される風のの力を利用して回転する仕組みとなっている。これにより回転にエネルギーや複雑なパーツも不要となり、環境にやさしい扇風機となる。

Propose a new desktop fan "ROVEY" for BRAUN competition .Generally, a fan needs electricity to go round, but ROVEY doesn’t. It spins by itself using own energy.ROVEY’s structure is hinted by a traditional Japanese balance toy “YAJIROVEY”, which librates by balancing with the fulcrum and the center. Because of this, ROVEY can spin by using a little energy generated from the wind of fan itself. ROVEY is excellent in saving energy, and is in harmony with environment.

Besides, ROVEY makes a 360-degree turn and works just like a ceiling fan to circulate air. Of course you can stop the 360-degree turn with the stopper, and use as an ordinal desktop fan.
