The Fan is a block from OpenBlocks that blows items and entities away. The blowing force gets gradually reduced over a five or six block distance, and the blowing effect cannot be blocked with any blocks. Fans do not suck; they therefore can be approached from behind without feeling any effect.

Fans are often used in mob farms. Unlike water, they can push Endermen without having them teleport away. A dark room with lots of Fans embedded in the walls to push mobs towards a mob grinder is a simple and affordable way of getting Ender Pearls in large quantities early in the game. Drops can be collected with a Vacuum Hopper. If the mob grinder uses Melee Turtles or Diamond Spikes then the Vacuum Hopper can collect XP as well.
