Xpelair Taurus

Here it is, the post you’ve all been waiting for…

xpelair taurus

 

I was walking past a work colleague’s desk the other day and spotted a fan. Wow, that fan looks familiar I thought. When I was a kid, living in West Germany, we had a fan like it. It was….The Xpelair Taurus. I remember the brown plastic fins (?), the satisfaction of pushing the buttons ‘0, 1, 2’. I can even feel the weight of it, how it was heavier at the back. I would put my fingers on the cage, imagining if it had the strength to chop them off. I realise now, I had affection for that fan. Anyway, that’s the model, up there. Apparently “the history of these unique fans is a bit vague” which I find hard to believe. You can watch a video of one if you like (over 5,746 views….?):
