Dyson 360 Eye Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Dyson's new vacuum, the Dyson 360 Eye, cost $47 million to research. Its vision system provides the machine with a 360 degree panoramic view of the room.

Just like you, Dyson 360 Eye™ robot constantly observes and interprets its surroundings. But unlike you, it sees all around the room at once.

This unique 360° vision system uses complex mathematics, probability theory, geometry and trigonometry to map and navigate a room. So it knows where it is, where it’s been and where it’s yet to clean.

Dyson cyclones capture dirt and microscopic dust. For Dyson 360 Eye™ robot, Dyson engineers designed our smallest Radial Root Cyclone™ technology yet. It generates high centrifugal forces to capture particles as small as pollen and mould.

Available for free on IOS and Android platforms, the Dyson Link app allows you to control and schedule how and when your Dyson 360 Eye™ robot vacuum cleans. It enables you to view maps of cleaning progress, even when you're not at home.

Sixty-five years ago, not many people thought that every home would have a robot to clean the floors. Robert Heinlein did, though; here is a quote from his 1956 novel The Door Into Summer.

What Hired Girl would do (the first model, not the semi-intelligent robot I developed it into) was to clean floors . . . any floor, all day long and without supervision. It went quietly looking for dirt all day long, in search curves that could miss nothing, passing over clean floors in its endless search for dirty floors...
