Dyson’s autonomous 360 Eye vacuum cleaner is due to arrive in shops in June, making your life much easier – but of course, all that beautifully crafted British tech comes at a premium price.
The robotic hoover features a panoramic eye on the top of its chassis, helping it avoid objects like tables, chairs, people and anything else that may get in its way. The infrared sensors also give a helping hand as the robot navigates around your home, cleaning everything in its sights.
Dyson hasn’t scrimped on its vacuuming prowess though – it’ll pack in as much power as any of the company’s cordless machines, which is a lot in comparison to others on the market.
In an email sent out to those on the company’s mailing list, Dyson said: “In just 6 weeks, the Dyson 360 Eye robot launches in the UK. So you’ll be able to welcome intelligent, autonomous cleaning into your home for the very first time. We’ll be in touch again very soon to let you know how you can be one of the first to own one. In the meantime, take a look at how we’re building our robots – and putting them through their paces.”
Of course, the Dyson 360 Eye isn’t the first autonomous vacuum cleaner to hit the market. Miele already has its Scout range, the iRobot has been a favourite for years and there’s a whole load of others that may not boast the same performance as Dyson’s new addition, but they’re a lot cheaper, making them instantly more attractive.
The 360 Eye was first announced in 2014 and is already available in Japan where it’s priced at 138,000 Yen before tax, which equates to a rather mammoth £750. Hopefully, it’ll be a little cheaper in the UK, but knowing Dyson, it’ll still cost more than the average robot hoover.
