Dyson launches 360 Vis Nav and V15s Detect Submarine


Dyson says the 26 sensors ensure obstacle avoidance, so it promises it won’t get stuck behind a sofa or potted plant. we will see. Perhaps the new form factor will help, as this version is thinner than the previous two, at just 99mm tall (the Heurist was 120mm).

The 360 ​​Vis Nav can pinpoint its position to within 71mm, so there’s definitely room for error. The accompanying app lets you pre-map dust hotspots, automatically increasing suction power when needed. It’s also pet-friendly with HEPA filtration and a quiet mode.

Dyson is particularly pleased with the 360 ​​Viz Nav’s edge cleaning (another feature the older model boasted), saying that its sensors now detect the edges of a room and then work their way up to sweep away dirt. Redirect via a new side-actuator instead of using the sweeper.

For the first time, Dyson has an all-in-one wet-and-dry cordless vacuum cleaner, the V15s Detect Submarine, which, like the new Robot Vac, will be launched later this year. It is believed to provide the right amount of water to remove spills, stains, as well as small dry debris such as pieces of food. It does this via eight jets of water that deliver 18ml of water every minute to the motorized microfibre roller, which Dyson sees as the perfect amount to evenly wash floors without leaving “overwhelming wetness”.

The 300ml water tank is apparently good for floors up to 110 square metres. A plate drains the contaminated water from the wet roller and dumps it into a separate, large, 360-ml waste tank so no dirt or debris is transferred back to your floors.

An “acoustic dust sensing” feature includes an LCD screen that shows the size and number of particles being sucked up, and measures microscopic particles with a piezo sensor, so the vacuum automatically spins up to 125,000-rpm when needed. Motor can increase suction.

Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde

Pumping up its existing HEPA Cool Formaldehyde fan, which can filter out pollen, formaldehyde from pet dander, tobacco smoke, household cleaning products, and outdoor air pollutants, Dyson now has a new version of this air purifier. There is a “Big+Quiet” version. Rather than being aimed at your average bedroom, the Big + Quiet Formaldehyde has been specifically engineered to clean the air in large, open-plan spaces.

Dyson claims the fan system can deliver pure air over 10 metres, while a new carbon dioxide sensor lets you know when to ventilate. It’s “big”—the “quiet” is overshadowed by the fact that this HEPA fan operates at just 56 decibels.

What about the next generation of batteries?

Eager to show off its engineering prowess, Dyson jaunts around it singapore sites Journalists were given a behind-the-scenes look at its St James Power Station, the Singapore Advanced Manufacturing Facility (to see the making of its digital motors) and the Singapore Technology Centre.

Demonstrated research products including various staff members autonomous robot Holding hands that can help lift household objects while presenting miniature models of vacuum cleaners as souvenirs to journalists built using the lab’s bank of prototype industrial 3D printers.

What wasn’t on display, however, was far more fascinating to the company than iterative updates to vacuums and purifiers: how Dyson was planning to manufacture what it promised would be a fundamentally new type of battery. Will be
