Dyson made Glass-like wearable in 2001

Google Glass may be the most notable pair of smartglasses currently in existence, but it certainly wasn't the first. While various manufacturers have tried their hand at creating a reality augmenting handset, one of the most unlikely among them was Dyson, best known for its vacuum cleaners.

Samsung sues Dyson over reputation damage in vacuum spat

Samsung sues Dyson over reputation damage in vacuum spat

Samsung has countersued Dyson, accusing the British vacuum cleaner company of having "negatively affected" its brand reputation after it sued the Korean firm back in 2013 over patent infringement. Dyson brought its suit in August in the UK, describing Samsung's 2013 Motion Sync cleaner as a "cynical rip-off" of a patent it itself was granted back in 2009, but later voluntarily dropped the case after discovering prior art. However, just being out of the legal headlamps isn't enough to satisfy Samsung, which is accusing its far smaller rival of damaging its good name.

Dyson Cinetic DC54 forgets filters with tiny wibbly cyclones

Dyson has revealed its latest vacuum, the Cinetic DC54, using a new system of tiny clustered cyclones to do away not only with the bag but the filter, too.

Noise-cancelling device for the home up for Dyson Award

Sono, a noise-cancelling device that attaches to your window, has been shortlisted as a top-20 finalist for the 2013 James Dyson Awards. Similar in concept to noise-cancelling headphones, the device detects ambient sounds and actively emits a counter-signal to replace the noise with projected silence or even with another simulated sound like the chirping of birds. It runs on a combination of grid power and harvested energy from surrounding electromagnetic activity such as Wi-Fi signals.

Dyson launches Airblade Tap, a hand-drying water faucet

Dyson has announced its Airblade Tap, a combination water tap and hand dryer that is completely hands-off and eliminates the need to walk from the sink to the hand dryer, dripping all over the floor on the way there. Utilizing infrared sensors, water turns on automatically when one goes to wash their hands, then the air dryer "blades" activate when the hands are moved slightly outwards. Check out a video of it in action after the jump.

Consumer Reports dices Dyson Hot space heater in tests

Consumer Reports dices Dyson Hot space heater in tests

There's a little bit of good and a whole lot of bad coming out of the tests that Consumer Reports have released on the 2011/2012 winter season's most expensive and famous heater: the Dyson Hot. We've only spoken about this fan/heater one other time here on SlashGear because, quite simply, it costs WAY too much for the average consumer for what it provides. That said, Consumer Reports did give this fan a cut-up in addition to saying a couple of nice things about it in their most recent report which, in the end, told consumers to go ahead and buy something else instead.
