Put a shroud around it and you have a vacuum cleaner. Invented over a hundred years ago by other people. That you are using an intermittent movement without a shroud does not matter, the idea is the same.

The “Fan-Effect” was not invented by anybody. The nature made it for millions year ago, long before anybody was thinking about rotating machinery. I discovered the “Fan-Effect” years ago when I was experimenting with fish propulsions.
