Dyson’s battery investment may pay off big for all

Dyson’s battery investment may pay off big for all

Dyson makes great goods for use around your home, and are edging toward a cordless existence. Their Digital Slim and Motorhead cordless handheld vacuums seem to be leading their charge, so it make sense they’d invest in battery technology that can get the job done. A new investment by Dyson now has them firmly planted in the cordless realm, but also may give them inroads into other avenues as well. According to Dyson, the new tech they’ve invested in is “world-beating”, and could even give us an affordable 300-mile electric vehicle in the future.

Dyson Humidifier employs UV light to keep air germ-free

Dyson Humidifier employs UV light to keep air germ-free

Dyson is really spreading its wings as far as its product lineup goes. Just last month it introduced to the world its first robot vacumm cleaner, the 360 Eye. Now, it is doing so again but with a humidifier. It doesn't have an ominous sounding name and is simply called the Dyson Humidifier. That doesn't mean, however, that it is any less interesting. This humidifier, which resembles and doubles as a bladeless fan, not only keeps your air cozily humid, it also kills germs before it distributes those water particles as well.

Dyson 360 Eye robot vacuum cleaner sees all

Dyson is finally entering the robotic age. Giving credence to our speculation last month, the vacuum cleaner maker has indeed come out with its own Roomba rival. Ominously named the 360 Eye, this robot doesn't look like any of the robot vacuum cleaners you've set your eyes on, and that starts with the robot's own eye.

Vacuum cleaner manufacturer Dyson could be working on a Roomba rival, if a new teaser video is anything to go by, as the British firm prepares for a new product launch next month. Details on Dyson Project N223 are scant, with nothing but a product's-eye-view of the engineering team to go by.

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.

Dyson recalling heaters over fire issue

Dyson, which just recently introduced its next-gen Air Multiplier, has had some bad luck with its heater version of the model. According to a recent statement by the company, a small unspecified number of its AM04 and AM05 heaters have short-circuited and resulted in a fire, prompting it to issue a recall.

Dyson outs second gen Air Multiplier fan

Dyson outs second gen Air Multiplier fan

Dyson is a name that most people probably associate with expensive vacuum cleaners. Way back in 2009 the company put out its very first fan called the Air Multiplier. The strangest part about this fan is that it has no moving blades and promised to be much quieter than your typical fan.

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. Squeezing - as the name suggests - 54 of the conical cyclone assemblies, arranged into a double-level stack, each uses a flexible tip made from a new material which sheds dust more readily, allowing the British firm to leave out the usual air filter.

Noise-cancelling device for the home up for Dyson Award

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.

ChallengeDyson publicly puts Dyson engineers to the test

Teched-out vacuum cleaner salesmen Dyson have begun displaying their engineers' willingness to take on extra-curricular engineering projects in a video entitled "Challenge Dyson 2013: Airborne."

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.
