Hands On With Dyson's New V8 Cordless Vacuum

We called Dyson’s cordless DC59 Motorhead the first genuine replacement for a full-sized vacuum, even with a few annoying design quirks and limited battery life. It has taken the company almost two years to design a follow-up, but the new Dyson V8 appears to fix most of the complaints we had with the original.


This Microwave Oven Is The Size Of A Thermos

There’s a reason the microwave in your kitchen is a heavy brick: it uses a magnetron and vacuum tube technology that dates back to World War II.

Snap A Photo In Your Home To Tell LG's New Robovac Where To Clean

Robovacs make at least one household chore a little easier, but with limited intelligence you can’t just tell them what rooms need cleaning. So LG’s HOM-BOT Turbo+ introduces a new feature which allows users snap a photo of their home and simply tap where the robovac needs to make another pass.


The Wait For A Remote Control R2-D2 Hi-Def Projector Refrigerator Is Almost Over

Ever since Star Wars first hit theatres back in 1977, fans have been asking themselves: “when are we going to get a remote control R2-D2 mini fridge with a built-in hi-def video projector?” The answer to that question, it turns out, is at the Consumer Electronics Show next month in Vegas.


Only Die-Hard Star Wars Fans Will Buy A Vader Fridge That Holds A Single Can

Lucasfilm and Disney have approved the ultimate loyalty test for Star Wars fans.
