Desktop Fan


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.
