The Dyson 360 Vis Nav, reputedly the world’s most powerful robot vacuum as of 2023, has officially launched in Australia.
With six times the suction of its closest competitor, this Hyperdymium motor-powered beast is the product of five years and over 750 engineers. And they’ve apparently resolved two major “frustrations” of its predecessors, according to Dyson’s senior design manager (robotics) James Carswell.
“Previous robots were mostly round. They did have a full width brush bar that was trying to get into the corners but it wasn’t doing it properly, so we’ve redesigned this making it a D-shape, so it’s square at the front and gets the job done,” explained Carswell.
Carswell added: “Our previous robot was also a lot higher, so it wasn’t getting underneath low furniture as much as we wanted to. So we compressed it down and made it as small as we can. Obviously that means it’s a bit wider, but the key thing was that it still gets between chair legs, and it does.”
The brush has also been improved with a new triple-action head for a deeper clean: softy nylon for large debris, antistatic carbon fibre filaments for fine dust, and stiff nylon for those tougher jobs on carpet.
“We know there are many frustrations with current robot vacuum cleaners, but a robot vacuum cleaner should not be a novelty,” said chief engineer Jake Dyson.
“Some have low suction power, or inefficient navigation systems which means that they often get stuck and don’t do a proper job of vacuuming.”
“But Dyson engineers have focused on developing machines that overcome these challenges and which increasingly anticipate our needs, understand its environment and operate autonomously.”
Other key features include the following:
- Dyson Hyperdymium motor (110,000 RPM)
