Dremel's New Rotary Tool Is Cheap Because It's Powered By A Vacuum Cleaner

They normally sell for $100 and up, but Dremel has found a way to make its rotary multi-tools a lot cheaper for anyone who already has a workshop full of equipment. Instead of having its own motor inside, the company’s new VRT1 is powered by the suction from a vacuum.

This Desk Vac Proves R2-D2's An Awesome Sidekick Even When He Sucks

There’s no reason to feel upset when you see R2-D2 forced to do menial jobs — that’s exactly what droids were built for. Believe it or not, he will thoroughly enjoy his latest role as a tiny $US24 vacuum for your desk, and happily suck up your bagel and Doritos crumbs.

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.

A Garbage Can With A Vacuum Just Made Dustpans Obsolete

If you have fancy hardwood floors at home, you’re probably hesitant to clean them with a vacuum for fear of scratching them all up, and bending over to use a dustpan and broom isn’t exactly a better solution. But the Bruno, a smart garbage can with a built-in suction slot, certainly is.

Eureka's New Vac Automatically Cleans Disgusting Hair From Its Brushroll

Better suction, battery power and HEPA filters are all great features to look for in a vacuum. But who cares about any of those now that Eureka has created an upright vacuum that can automatically clean hairs and threads tangled around its spinning brush roll? Never having to reach in there with scissors is a fantastic innovation.

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.

Miele RX1 Scout Robot Vacuum Cleaner: Australian Review

Robot vacuum cleaners are great, in theory. That most menial of household chores is perfectly suited to a mindless automaton, cleaning up your leavings while you’re out and having fun. But they usually aren’t especially good. Until now, we would have only recommended Samsung’s POWERbot. Miele, the brand of choice for proper vacuum cleaners, now has a robot in its arsenal.

When You're Not Cleaning, This Self-Standing Vac Is Also An Air Purifier

What do you do with your vacuum in-between visits from your parents? Does it just sit in a utility closet until you need to do a mad-dash cleaning the day before company arrives? That seems like a waste, and Mitsubishi apparently agrees because the company has created a stick vac that does double-duty as an air purifier while it’s not being used to clean floors.

There's No Wrong Side Up With A Flippable Vacuum

Canister vacuums are lighter and more manoeuvrable than a stick-style vac, but you often have to keep running over to rescue them when they get stuck or even flipped upside down. To help alleviate both problems, the Vax AirRevolver is designed as a self-contained cylinder with over-sized wheels that clamber over anything and clever engineering that allows it to keep on sucking no matter how it gets flipped.

Dyson Finally Perfected The Vacuum By Eliminating The Need For Filters

A Dyson is promised to keep on sucking at almost full power even as its dirt bin gets full, but few users realise there are also hidden filters that need to be periodically cleaned to keep the vacuum running at full strength. For a company that prides itself on vacuums that never lose suction, that was a big problem. So to ensure that users won’t ever forget to clean those filters, Dyson simply engineered a better vacuum design that eliminates them altogether.
