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.

Dyson Hot adds heat to Air Multiplier fans

Dyson Hot adds heat to Air Multiplier fans

Dyson's distinctive Air Multiplier fan has spawned a new version, and this time it wants to keep you toasty warm rather than cool you down. The Dyson Hot uses the same bladeless fan technology as its predecessors - hiding the impeller in the base, and channeling the air up through the arched top section so as to remove buffeting and the chance of accidentally slicing into your fingers - but adds a ceramic heating element that, the company promises, adds up to the most efficient way of warming your room.

Dyson Air Multiplier AM02 and AM03 bladeless fans debut

Dyson Air Multiplier AM02 and AM03 bladeless fans debut

Dyson has launched two new fans, using the same unusual blade-hidden design of the original Dyson Air Multiplier debuted back in October 2009.  The  AM01 desktop model is joined by the Dyson AM02 Tower Fan, a floor-standing unit with full-length air pushing abilities, and the Dyson AM03 Pedestal Fan, which basically takes the head unit from the AM01 and puts it on a free-standing mount.

Dyson unveils small City DC26 vacuum

Dyson unveils small City DC26 vacuum

I never thought vacuums were cool or particularly wanted a vacuum for any reason. In fact, I didn’t like using the vacuums I had. Once I bought a house with lots of hard floors and had messy kids the vacuum was suddenly a more important device. Being a gadget geek I naturally wanted the coolest and highest tech vacuum I could get, so I looked at Dyson vacuums.

Dyson Air Multiplier fan hides blades, swallows your money

Dyson Air Multiplier fan hides blades, swallows your money

While it might resemble an automatic blood pressure monitor for those with huge arms, or a pedestal-mounted personal Stargate, you're actually looking at James Dyson's latest rethink to domestic appliances.  The Dyson Air Multiplier is the UK engineer's attempt to replace the humble fan, dropping the blades into the base section and re-routing the air through the ring.

Jake Dyson Motorlight Wall

If your father is Sir James Dyson, inventor of - among other things - the Dyson vacuum cleaner, you can either find a completely unrelated industry to work in or bite the bullet and try to innovate your way out his shadow.  Jake Dyson chose the latter route, and came up with this: the Motorlight Wall.  A remote-controlled lamp with adjustable iris, the Motorlight Wall can uniquely offer various spreads of light between 10 and 120 degrees.

Dyson Root 6 vacuum reviewed

Dyson Root 6 vacuum reviewed

I saw one of these Root 6 vacuum cleaners from Dyson while I was at the supermarket the other day and was awfully tempted to get one; they're smaller than they look in the photos, the dust collection container is only about as big as a broad jam-jar.  Anyway, Apartment Therapy have put one through its paces and decided whether it deserves space in their under-stair cupboard; well worth a look.

Fast-drying Hands with Dyson’s Airblade

Fast-drying Hands with Dyson’s Airblade

The Dyson Airblade will keep bacteria off your hands, if not slice your fingers off with its blade of air. It is a revolutionary hand drier for public bathrooms that really kicks some hand drier butts. It blasts a sheet of clean unheated air at 400mph through a 0.3millimeter slit. The excess water from your hands will go through a disinfecting iodine resin filter and be dispersed as fine mist in the air rather than left around in unhealthy puddles or wiped away on pant legs. Continue on to see the other cool diagram of it disintegrating, I mean drying and disinfecting a pair of hands.
