Dyson's All-Seeing 360 Eye Vacuum Roams For Dirt

In some ways, the vacuum is like the toaster. It has been around for as long as anyone can remember, has become a staple of households everywhere, and it's pretty tough to innovate on. Unless you're Dyson, in which case you've been making outlandish dirt suckers for years. The company's newest invention is the Dyson 360 Eye, which aims to compete with Roomba and competing vacs that can see around your room and operate without you watching over it.

As the name implies, there's a robotic eye embedded that enables it to see walls, objects, and flooring ahead. The difference is the company's patented cyclone technology, as well as a V2 Dyson digital motor. There's also some fancy intelligence inside, which allows it to avoid objects and constantly build out maps in its head using the eye plus infrared sensors.

Heck, the unit is even smart enough to find its charger when power's running low. It's slated to ship first in Japan early next year, with the rest of the globe likely following suit soon after. There's no word on pricing yet, but have a look at the intro video for a better idea of what's in store for your floor.
