Much like the 3-D display in our latest video, this LED art fan displays moving images on a rotating blade in 2-D. We've seen similar versions before, but this makes strides with color and programmability.
With 42 LEDs mounted on the blades the LED art fan spins and flickers to create beautiful images. Holding up to 128 individual pictures in its built-in memory, the LED art fan displays animated gif files in an 85 diameter pixel resolution while circulating the air and lowering room temperature. Although it only works with a PC, the fan is classically designed in chrome art deco style and is programmable with the included IR transmitter. Available for $400 from ThinkGeek.
