Crazy tech

oldHusker

This thing can CLEAN - specifically on the smaller side of things. I was also able to get spots that haven't been cleaned in a while, and the laser attachment showed me there were a lot of those places. I was pretty horrified by what the display was showing but happy to know it's taken care of now. I was hesitant about battery life, but the machine is 'smart' enough to get a lot done. Also, the battery itself is detachable and able to be charged on its own. Certain attachments swap the 'medium' power mode to an 'auto' mode that will use the proper suction for what is being cleaned, and turn up the power for dirty areas. The 'boost' mode can drain the battery pretty quickly, but 'eco' mode will cover my 5-room townhouse no problem. I prefer the 'auto' modes to save power, but also for peace of mind. It appeared accurate and turned on heavy duty mode for places I had not expected but made sense.

Makes the invisible visible

A precisely angled laser makes invisible dust visible on hard floors

  • Finely engineered

    A custom lens spreads laser light into a fan shape, exactly 1.5° down and 7.3mm from the ground, to illuminate fine dust but not the surface it sits on.

  • Green laser

    The human eye’s evolutionary sensitivity to green light means we see it brighter than other colors, enhancing contrast and making hidden dust clearly visible.

Dust passing the piezo sensor

Counts

A piezo sensor counts and measures the size of dust particles⁺⁺

Measures microscopic
dust particles

The piezo sensor measures dust particles passing through the inlet 15,000 times a second.

The sensor converts the acoustic vibrations of picked-up particles into an electrical signal, allowing the vacuum to intelligently react when more dust is identified.⁺⁺

Dyson Hyperdymium motor

Reacts

Suction power automatically adapts to dust levels⁺⁺

Scientific proof of a deep clean

Our latest technology counts and measures the size of dust particles – showing you what’s being removed as you clean.⁺⁺

  • Particles the size of allergens and pollen

    Particles the size of allergens and pollen

    Pollen is commonly carried into homes on skin, hair, clothes, footwear, and pets. Once inside, pollen grains and antigens accumulate in house dust, reaching a peak concentration long after pollination season.

  • Particles the size of microscopic dust and skin flakes

    Particles the size of microscopic dust and skin flakes

    Molds measure up to 100µm and can be found around kitchens, windows, and other damp areas. Their spores can irritate the nose and throat, causing shortness of breath.

  • Particles the size of dust mites and fine sand

    Particles the size of dust mites and fine sand

    House dust mites are one of the major indoor triggers for allergies and asthma. Each mite produces about 20 droppings a day, which continue to cause symptoms even after the mite has died.

  • Particles the size of sugar and fleas

    Particles the size of sugar and fleas

    These larger, visible particles are trapped in the bin as soon as they enter the primary cyclone and metal mesh filter – clearing the airflow, so there’s no loss of suction.
