Dyson made waves when they introduced a line of sleek blade-less fans after their success with their well-designed and powerful vacuum cleaners. The brand has stirred up more excitement recently with the addition of its Supersonic hairdryer, which operates in a range inaudible to humans.
A 13-blade V9 digital motor fan inside the handle (for better weight balance), pulls air in at 110,000rpm and a microprocessor adjusts the performance to stop excessive heat damage to hair.

Zaha Hadid, the contraversial and celebrated architect has died of a heart attack in Miami at the ago of 65.
Hadid's first completed project the Vitra Fire Station was built in 1994 when she was 44 and it was soon followed by success and increasing demand for her designs.
Winning the Pritzker Prize in 2004, Hadid became the first woman to receive the award since its creating in 1979. She was also the first woman to win Britain's Royal Gold Medal in 2016.
Born in Baghdad in 1950, she went on to earn a degree in mathematics before studying architecture.
In 1988 the Museum of Modern Art's show "Deconstructivist Architecture"cemented her reputation in the art world. Hadid's designs were exhibited as art and foreshadowed her obsession with digital architecture - diagonals, arcs and warped planes.
“Studying the revolutionary Russian work I realized how Modern architecture built upon the breakthrough achieved by abstract art as the conquest of a previously unimaginable realm of creative freedom,” Hadid said in an address upon receiving the Pritzker, in 2004. “Art used to be re-presentation rather than creation. Abstraction opened the possibility of unfettered invention.”
