I just discovered this part recently, they are quite interesting and I can imagine all kinds of neat applications for this device.

The principle of operation is very similar to a piezoelectric beeper, only the operating frequency is an inaudible 25 kHz, the unit has a diaphragm that is excited into vibration by a piezo-ceramic disc, the vibrations induce an airflow through the device at an impressive rate of up to 1 liter per minute and can produce pressure differences up to 2 kPa.
