James Dyson has unveiled his company’s latest vacuum cleaner – an extension of the impressive, wireless Digital Slim range of waif-like floor suckers. It’s certainly skinny, but what else makes it special?
“Dyson engineers used Archimedes’ simple, but brilliant lever principle to develop the configuration of the machine – giving it perfect poise in the hand. Power in the grip and balance in the wand has given us an agile machine that packs a punch,” Dyson says of the machine.
The wireless cleaner will pump out 20 minutes of evenly-powered action between charges – plenty of time to whip round the house. And whip you shall: the DC44′s centre of gravity is up at the top with your hand, rather than at the bottom, making waving the thing about as easy as flicking your wrist.
Want one more trick? Ok, how’s this: the head now has carbon filaments with anti-static powers, which means it’ll separate dust from wooden floors like oil and water.
The Dyson DC44 will set you back £280 when it launches on August 30th.
