TL; DR: On May 22, Dyson announced a new suite of home products(opens in new tab) including upgraded cordless vacuums, air purifiers, and robot vacuums.
Dyson is entering a new era in 2023.
Less than two weeks after the company’s new wet-to-dry hair straightener, the Dyson Airstrait, became available for purchase, Dyson also casually unveiled a brand new suite of products.(opens in new tab) in the original core categories: vacuums and air purifiers.
Unlike Dyson who doesn’t release new products on an almost yearly basis – they usually come out quietly and one by one. The latest Dyson drop not only features six new products, but also pushes Dyson out of its comfort zone in several ways. Let’s check out the details of the new Dyson goodies:
Surprise: Dyson actually didn’t stop making robot vacuums
Dyson’s dabbles in the robot vacuum realm are unprecedented. You may be years old now when you know that a Dyson robot vacuum ever existed in the first place. There’s the Dyson 360 Eye, a tough relic that’s been collecting dust in a figurative basement since 2016, and the Dyson 360 Heurist, a 2020 upgrade to the Eye that hasn’t been released in the US yet.
Even with such strong brand recognition, the clunkiness of the Dyson Eye line quickly landed them in flop territory. But today, we see the end goal of Dyson’s multi-year hiatus from robot vacuums: meet the Dyson 360 Vis Nav.
For better or worse, the 360 Vis Nav stays true to Dyson’s bold color palette.
The 360 Vis Nav is slimmer than the 360 Eye and adopts the unique D-shaped design found on the Roomba s9 and Samsung Jet Bot AI+. Those 90-degree angles naturally improve a robot vac’s ability to sweep corners compared to a round model, but the 360 Vis Nav has several tricks up its sleeve that promise to truly clean the wall to wall. Equipped with sensors that detect the edges of the room, the 360 Vis Nav slides up to the walls (targeting its position as close as 71 mm, or less than three inches) and redirects suction through a side actuator for precise wall and corner. cleaning. The roller brush also stretches the entire length of the vacuum for full coverage of the bot’s path.
The 360 Vis Nav brush is composed of three materials for strong multi-surface cleaning.
Oh, and one more little thing: Dyson claims the 360 Vis Nav has twice the suction power of any other robot vacuum on the market. Depending on how the internal piezo sensor counts and categorizes the dust particles in an area of the floor, the 360 Vis Nav will adjust the suction accordingly.
Aside from noting the use of Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) navigation technology and a hemispheric camera that helps the bot remember where it’s been, Dyson hasn’t covered how (or if) the 360 Vis Nav will map your home. or stay out. in some places.
The Roomba Combo j7+ is very good at cleaning and very good at not eating phone chargers
The price and release date for the 360 Vis Nav is still TBD, but for reference, the 360 Eye went for $999 when it came out in 2016.
Several Dyson cordless vacuums, including a mop
Unlike robot vacuums, Dyson’s only real competition in the upright cordless vacuum realm is …Dyson. However, the brand continues to find ways to one-up itself – this time, the one-up is a mop.
The Dyson Submarine is actually a wet roller head attachment with two water tanks – one for clean water and one for dirty water – led by a motor-driven microfiber brush that follows the spills, stains, and small debris on hardwood floors. The Submarine cleaning head can be used with the new V15s Detect Submarine vacuum, but has not been cleared to work with existing Dyson vacuums.
Dyson’s new upright vacuums provide more thorough cleaning than anything else Dyson offers.
Dyson has also expanded its iconic dry sweeping line with two new cordless vacuums. Both the Gen5detect and Gen5outsize harness “unmatched” suction power through Dyson’s fifth-generation Hyperdymium motor. Both ships with the new Fluffy Optic cleaner head that features the dust-illuminating laser of previous models like the V12 Detect Slim, but brighter.
As expected, the new machines feature a fully sealed HEPA filter system, which sends debris through 14 cyclones that remove dust from the air stream without loss. to absorb.
As of May 23, the Gen5 vacs are the only models in the new suite with official prices and release dates. Gen5detect and Gen5outsize will be available in the US starting June 6 for $949 and $1,049, respectively. They are the most expensive option in Dyson’s cordless vacuum line(opens in new tab).
Dyson’s new air purifiers are built differently – literally
The new Dyson purifier comes in two models: one for homes and one for commercial spaces.
Dyson’s most powerful air purifier is also the quietest – and what better name for such a machine than Big + Quiet?
Although still bladeless, the Big+Quiet Formaldehyde strays from the cylindrical hollow design we’re used to. Inside the new body is a “Cone Aerodynamics” system that can project clean air up to 32 feet away, as well as a new CO2 sensor to monitor the ventilation. The “formaldehyde” part of the title refers to Dyson’s claim that said purifiers can detect and destroy formaldehyde floating around your home through a Catalytic filter, which can be found in some of the previous cleaners. Dyson. All this happens with no more than 56 decibels of sound.
An alternative version called the Dyson Purifier HEPA Big+Quiet Formaldehyde is also available, designed for shared, commercial spaces. Prices for either model have not been confirmed, but Dyson currently lists formaldehyde-treating purifiers.(opens in new tab) between $689.99 and $939.99.
