Tesla Inspired Bladeless Ceiling Fan

Location: Georgetown, Indiana

I’m a big fan of fans especially cool high tech ones, and the Exhale bladeless ceiling fan certainly fits the bill. I also like making sure great fixed funding campaigns hit their goal, and while these guys are well on track, it’d be great to see them get over it early!

The “South Sudan Media Project” stems from the belief that development of media and photo-journalism can play a major role in building democracy in the newly-formed country of South Sudan. Help give a voice to underserved groups and overlooked communities through the power of photography and self documentation!
