Inside Building 32 at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas sits Chamber A, a marvel of engineering, cleanliness and design. It’s also the closest you can come to being in space without strapping into a rocket.


There's A Smaller Vacuum Hiding In The Handle Of This Upright Vac

Instead of trying to make a compact handheld vacuum as powerful as a full-size vac like Dyson did with its cordless DC59, Samsung has decided to just cram a second smaller vacuum into its new VU7000 upright so you can easily suck dirt and dust off everything that’s not your floors.


The Fluffy Is Dyson's Answer To Dusty, Dirty Hardwood Floors

Looking like those soft rollers you use to quickly paint walls, Dyson’s latest lightweight vacuum is appropriately called the Fluffy and is designed to tackle dust and dirt on hardwood floors without leaving a trail of scratch and scrape marks behind it.


Dyson's First Robo-Vac Has Tank-Treads And A 360-Degree Camera

There have been all kinds of gimmicks to help your robot vacuum clean every inch of your home without requiring you to steer it around. But Dyson, while late to the robo-vac party, might have unsurprisingly come up with the best one yet. Its Eye 360 includes an all-seeing 360 degree camera that knows where it’s been where it needs to go, and what obstacles it should avoid.


Dyson Teases Upcoming Secret Project (It's Probably A Robot Vacuum)

Dyson just released this video teasing its upcoming project, codenamed N223. They might as well have codenamed it “We’re going to destroy the Roomba”, because it’s very probably a robotic vacuum cleaner.


Toshiba's New Robovac Uses Three Times The Sensors For Less Collisions

With countless new models released every year, the robovac arms race seems happy to ignore features like battery life, storage capacity, and even price.

A Simple Accessory Turns Your Shopvac Into An Extra Set Of Hands

Even if you’re working with a team of carpenters, Festool’s new CT Wings accessory seems like it could be the next must-have tool for every workshop or jobsite. It’s designed to attach to the end of the hose on of one of Festool’s shop vacuums and then securely suction itself to a wall so that it can be used as a support or a temporary way to hold something in place.


Samsung's Robo Vac Chases Lasers Like A Cat To Clean Any Spots It Missed

The Roomba paved — or cleaned — the way for a long list of robot vacuum copycats to hit the market, but very few offer a compelling reason to not just buy the original autonomous floor cleaner. However, what Samsung’s new VR9000H robo vac lacks in eye-catching product naming, it makes up for with a neat feature that lets you manually steer the vacuum around your floor using an included laser pointing remote. It’s like having a cat that gets rid of hairballs instead of creating them.


Dyson's Cordless DC59: A True Replacement For A Full-Sized Vac

They started out as dustbusters that actually worked, but Dyson’s cordless vacuums have improved to the point where they’re very nearly a viable alternative to full-sized models. Especially now that they come with a powered cleaning head, capable of really tackling the crustiest of carpets.


Amusing Vacuum Billboard Sucks Its Own Ad Back Into View

Here’s further proof that you don’t need celebrities, scantily clad models, or even a developer’s conference to advertise a product. Playing up those billboards that rotate through multiple advertisements during the day, Samsung stuck one of its vacuums on top of this sign, and it roars to life with suction whenever another ad attempts to rotate into place.
