The new, first-ever Dyson robotic vacuum, called the Dyson 360 Eye, launched today in Japan, where it’ll hit the market in the spring of 2015.
Dyson plans to introduce its Dyson 360 Eye robotic vacuum cleaner to U.S. customers in the fall of 2015. The vacuum promises unique features such as sophisticated vision navigation technology that creates a map of its surroundings to more easily navigate territory than its competitors, which depend on feeling their way around.
The new Dyson 360 Eye also sports its own smartphone and tablet app, available for iOS or Android, which will allow users to set up cleaning schedules and control the vacuum remotely from any location. Weighing just 5.22 pounds, the Dyson 360 Eye runs for about 20 to 30 minutes on a charge, then redocks itself when the battery gets low. It uses the powerful suction technology at the heart of its popular cordless vacuums like the Dyson DC59 Motorhead.
