hmm what if one was to use one of the medium to large sized electric rc airplane motors with an rc plane prop inside a funnel with a tube going to the intake... those things can chop off a finger if you aren't careful. i have two rc planes, both are fairly small, but if you hang on to it and throttle up, you can really feel the pull.

now that i think of it why stay electric, as long as it has electric starter (so you can start and stop it on the go w/ a switch) you could probably rig up a gas rc plane or car engine to power the fan and make it blow even harder. bike would look badass too with two gas engines running it, one for propelling the bike and one for the forced air intake.
