So, we have all seen those Dyson fans that blow air without blades. Well, this new router by ASUS seems to have borrowed on that concept for their new Blue Cave dual-band router.

The ASUS Blue Cave dual-band Wi-Fi router simply looks like a white speaker with a cascading blue hole in the middle. It has a smooth clean and look measures 160 x 160 x 80 mm. Blue Cave weights about 1.76lbs and easily fits in most locations where needed. ASUS moved away from external antennas and went with four internal antennas for the Blue Cave.
