Dyson Is Spending Nearly $3 Billion On Batteries, Motors And Robot Research

Dyson had a good 2015. Australia is responsible for a moderate chunk of the company’s $850 million (£448 million) in yearly profit, but a lot of that comes from Dyson’s battery-powered V6 handstick vacuums — sales grew by 35 per cent in Australia. Dyson is putting that money back into making its gadgets better, though — including nearly $2 billion over five years for research into better batteries.


Dyson And Airbnb's Hidden House In Melbourne: Chock Full Of Classic Design Icons And Dyson Tech

A month ago, Dyson and Airbnb teamed up to run a competition — something between a guessing game and a treasure hunt, or a real-life version of GeoGuessr. The prize was a weekend’s stay in an unlisted, one-of-a-kind Airbnb listing — which turned out to be a pop-up apartment on the roof of Tonic House in Melbourne, stacked full of Dyson gadgets and inventor James Dyson’s design icons.


Dyson Is Bringing Its Super-Efficient LED Lamps To Australia Next Year

LED lamps consume a miniscule fraction of the energy of incandescent or fluorescent globes to create light, but the heat generated as a byproduct of the process is detrimental to the diodes’ long-term life span. Jake Dyson, the son of prolific inventor and engineering genius James Dyson, was involved in the development of Dyson Lighting’s CSYS lamp — boasting a 154,000 hour life, or 37 years of use — that will be released in Australia in 2016.


The 2015 James Dyson Award Winner For Australia Is A Wearable For Expectant Mothers

The winners of this year’s James Dyson Award have been announced, and Australia’s deserving student design project victor is Sarah Heimeier, an industrial design student at RMIT — whose Jana is a wearable ultrasonic sensor that can monitor an expectant mother and baby’s heartbeat, blood pressure and glucose levels. Aimed at pregnant women in rural parts of Australia without easy and constant access to medical care, Jana works with a smartphone to transmit vital information to doctors, giving early warning of any potential complications like preeclampsia.


Dyson And LG Are Fighting Over Who Has The Most Powerful Cordless Vacuum

Dyson prides itself on having some of the best vacuums in the industry, and proudly says so in its advertising material. But that’s no longer the case: Dyson has been bested by LG and its CordZero cordless vacuum, and has pledged to remove advertising material from stores and online saying that the Dyson V6 Cordless is the “most powerful cordless vacuum” as part of an out-of-court settlement.


Dyson Hot + Cool Fan: Australian Review

Dyson’s Hot + Cool is a $699, motorised, heating and cooling behemoth that sucks air through a tiny aperture and accelerates it through the application of some nifty physics — just like a jet airliner’s turbofan. It’ll smoothly accelerate air from across a medium-sized room, and cool you at a distance while remaining quiet. It’s not quite as expensive as a 747, but it’s still crazy pricy. You are definitely paying for the engineering that has gone into this monster, though; this is one expensive fan.


Even Dyson's Office Pens Are Beautifully Engineered

It’s really no surprise that the company that raised the vacuum from a lowly appliance to a lustworthy gadget puts a strong focus on design. But a recent visit to Dyson’s US headquarters revealed that design ethos extends all the way down to the pens used around the office.


Stop Swiffering

Cleaning sucks. Sure, it’s nice and satisfying when you’re done, but stuffing your hands in dirt and swabbing filth around the floor is basically unpleasant. There’s no need to make it more unpleasant by letting a multi-billion dollar conglomerate rob you blind. Put differently: You should stop Swiffering and buy a nice vacuum.


Dyson V6 Absolute Cordless Vacuum: Australian Review

Dyson is the last word in suction. I have no idea how its products do the things they do, but the the V6 Absolute cordless vacuum is one of the suckiest products I’ve ever used. I mean sucky as a verb, not an adjective mind you.
