Dyson's Massive Floating Garbage Vacuum Could Clean Up Our Rivers

James Dyson has an idea for a new form of sucking machine — one so large it requires an entire barge to house it. The idea here is to let a giant water-going vessel free and allow it to “mine” rivers of all the floating junk that’s been tossed away into waterway everywhere since man first invented plastic bottles and tin cans.


Dyson Recalling Hot + Cool Fan Heaters Across Australia; Short-Circuit Problems To Blame

Dyson’s Hot + Cool Air Multiplier fan heaters are being recalled worldwide, for a safety fix after a small number of units short-circuited and caught fire. Apparently up to a million heaters are up for repair; the “potential safety issue” has Dyson offering any customers a free repair including postage to and from Dyson’s Australian workshops, and a brand new two year warranty upon the devices’ return.


Dyson's Bladeless Fans Are Now 75% Quieter

It’s been over four years since Dyson introduced a fan that somehow worked without visible blades. And besides releasing a few new models over the years, the company hasn’t announced any major updates to its Air Multiplier line since 2009. But it turns out that’s because Dyson’s engineers were finding clever ways to make these fans even quieter — up to 75 per cent quieter to be exact — on three new models being rolled out today.

Dyson's New Vacuum Cleaners Make You Feel Like A Superhero

There’s something strangely throttling about a Dyson device. The curves feel futuristic, and the transparent plastic shows you what’s under the hood. And the latest generation runs faster than a Formula 1 race car. You almost have to pinch yourself to remember that it’s just a vacuum cleaner.


A Full-Size Hybrid Vacuum You Can Charge By USB

When you hear the words ‘vacuum’ and ‘USB’ used in the same sentence, you probably picture a tiny keyboard cleaning tool with barely enough power to suck up crumbs. But Panasonic’s hybrid MC-HS700G — now available in Japan — is a full-sized vacuum cleaner strong enough to lift a bowling ball that can also be charged from a USB port giving you up to 20 minutes of suction without a tether to a wall outlet.


Meet Titan Arm: An Affordable Exoskeleton That Will Change The World

Exoskeleton technology, mech suits and robotic prosthetics are the way of the future, both for labourers and those suffering from various medical conditions. The problem with current technology, however, is the astronomical cost involved in getting them built. Thanks to the winning team of this year’s James Dyson Awards, exoskeletons are finally becoming smarter and as cheap as $2000.


Dyson Might Sue Samsung In Australia Over Vacuum 'Rip-Off'

Samsung and Dyson, two giants in the home appliance sector, are both currently warring over alleged patent infringement in the UK courts. Now, you might think, “why do I care when we’re all the way down here?”. You should care because if Dyson wins its action in England, it may end up suing Samsung Down Under as well.


How Dyson Made Its Airblade Hand Dryers 50% Quieter

They’re the greatest thing to happen to public restrooms since those automatic toilet seat covering contraptions, but now Dyson’s engineers have managed to find a way to make its Airblade hand dryers even better by reducing their noise by 50 per cent. Because as impressive as drying your hands in just 12 seconds is, the previous versions came with a healthy dose of volume.


Check Out This Army Of Bizarre Flying Machines Built By Dyson Engineers

Dyson has some kick-arse vacuum engineers, but even the most passionate vacuum designer needs a little break now and then. That’s why Dyson’s team took a break to work on something completely different for a change of pace: weird, hacked-together flying (and crashing!) machines.
