The purpose of this study is to clarify the effects of people’s psychological evaluation based on different characteristics of air flow. In this study, we gave male subjects various air-flow stimuli made by an Air Flow Generating Device (AFGD), which had been developed in a prior study, along with a Dyson Air Multiplier AM01, to the back of their hand, palm, cheek, and back of the neck in a hothouse, with a temperature set to 20 degrees and a humidity of 45%. Results showed that higher wind speed air flow brought about cool and negative sensations and air flow created by AM01 made participants colder and more comfortable than air flow made by AFGD.
