It’s less money than a fitbit and won’t cause a fight when discovered in a stocking. Retail prices range from $79 to $109 based on features. The only ceiling fan it doesn’t control is in our museum. Well, maybe not the only, but it does work on almost all AC motor ceiling fans. There are more smart devices in the world than there are people. Need I say more?

With fanSync everyone in the home can control their fans with their…

Hello! My Name is Big Island

Dude, hello? Do you know what time it is bro? I was just in the middle of a killer dream when your phone call woke me up! Dude, I know it’s the middle of the afternoon, but this is primo sleeping time for me (audible yawn). Okay, okay, I’m up, let’s do this. I started surfing when I was 5 and I’ve been riding waves ever since. My old man, the Islander, won his first surf competition when he was 9 years old. It’s been hard to get out from his shadow, but I finally made the pro tour about two years ago. The tour is sick because I get paid to travel the world chasing breaks. The best waves…

Hello! My Name is fanSync

Hi! First off, I just want to thank you for agreeing to do this interview at two in the morning. I know it’s unconventional, but I’m always working and this seems to be the ONLY time that I’m not running on high speed. I’ve been on a whirlwind tour across the country promoting, well, me and I just can’t seem to get a minute by myself.  I’ve read through all your interviews and decided that the most efficient way to understand what I’m all about is to watch my newest commercial, enjoy!

In honor of National Ceiling Fan Day, coming up on Thursday, September 18th, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten reasons you need a new ceiling fan. 10.) Your light kit is the only thing that’s spinning. 9.) Your fan hasn’t been dusted in twenty years and the blades can barely hold up all the dirt. http://uglyhousephotos.com/wordpress/?p=9306 8.) Not all brass is making a comeback. If it was around during the Truman Administration, it’s time for an update.  http://www.smarteralec.net/2013/11/when-sht-hits-fan.html 7.) 7.) It’s your cat’s favorite toy. http://gifrific.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Cat-jumps-onto-ceiling-fan.gif 6.) It’s your dog’s favorite toy. http://popgoestheweek.com/2012/05/funny-video-dog-jumps-to-ceiling-to-retrieve-toy/ 5.) If the blades droop any further, they’ll be touching the floor. http://www.momendeavors.com/2013/04/patio-lighting-ceiling-fan-makeover-lowescreator.html 4.) It’s starting to look like the stuff nightmares are made of…

Mindstorm Madness Camp Gets Creative!

Tom Frampton’s cousin, Julie Panus, is a science teacher. Julie teaches a Mindstorm Madness Camp for fifth, sixth, and seventh graders over the summer at Plymouth State University (PSU) in Plymouth, New Hampshire.   Using the LEGO Mindstorms, campers worked in teams, learned to build and program robots. Teams were challenged to solve real-world problems with their bots, in both cooperative and competitive challenges. Naturally, due to Tom’s inquisitive nature, he asked how he could get involved. Tom decided to challenge the students to program a bot to write the word Fanimation. If they were successful, they would each win an Urbanjet fan from Fanimation. As you can see below, we are now a few Urbanjet’s short!
