I wonder how much power it uses to push the electrons to get the air moving?

Hard to tell with the video as it looks like the footage of the fan is being "talked over" by the commentary.

I'm skeptical. A bit of dust will create a short with the uninsulated wires.

I can't watch that video because of the crap implementation not handling slow connections well(youtube beats it's ass even on dialup in this area) but if this is what I think it is, I seem to recall these being at least somewhat dangerous to humans and some other materials as well as causing irritation in humans.
