Note on the Dyson Fan: Beware that at the dimensions for the bagpipe's mouthpiece, a ring that small will not function as effectively as a full-sized ring due to viscous fluid and turbulence effects. If such a fan were to power the bagpipes, it will need a full-sized intake and must feed into the bag by a converging duct to avoid backflow. Also, a potential alternative to the Dyson fan, a Coanda fan (uses Coanda effect) or a Tesla Turbine (could be built from an old hard drive's platters and spinner). --Spacefelix 12:00, 25 February 2010 (CST)

Not all about bagpipes

You're missing the point. We're looking to make our own Dyson fan, not specifically solve the bagpipe issue.
