From the Telegraph: “First Dyson did away with bags in its vacuum cleaners. Now the manufacturer has done away with the majority of the entire device. Unveiling what the company is calling “the most powerful lightweight cordless vacuum-cleaner”, inventor James Dyson said the device’s motor “spins five times faster than a Formula 1 car engine” The battery-powered Dyson Digital Slim will retail for £199 and last for 15 minutes on each charge. A high-power mode will also provide six minutes of increased suction.”
It looks as if the mechanism for holding the vacuum, the part that holds the battery and the suction, is the same as their handheld vacuums. What would be nice, is if Dyson made it so that the parts for a floor and handheld machine were interchangeable. Then, we’d really have something to talk about.
