    We’re almost done, kiddies. This is what you’ve all been waiting for. I had a great time at Dyson learning about dust mites, chatting with James about the iPhone, watching him bash a DC24 and getting an overview of the history of Dyson. But my main objective while in Malmesbury was to design and build a prototype attachment for one of the vacuums in the line up. I own the Root 6, so… Read More

  • Interview: James Dyson loves and hates on the iPhone, BlackBerry


    While at Dyson HQ, I had the pleasure, once again, of interviewing the man himself. I had to ask what his thoughts were on the iPhone, and James’ answers were both entertaining and interesting. I have an iPhone and a BlackBerry. And I have to confess that I use the BlackBerry more. But I really wanted to like the iPhone because it’s thin—one of the clever things about… Read More

  • Gallery: Dyson HQ


    Today, I’ll be wrapping up everything Dyson from my trip to Malmesbury. You’ll never believe what James considers his favorite gadgets. I know you’re excited to see the prototype I designed. And you’ll be privy to a short video of stress tests that all the products go through. Stick around. In the meantime, enjoy a small gallery of photos I was allowed to take on… Read More

  • Rumor: Dyson working on a stand alone air purifier

    http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docid=-28441174614961743&hl=en&fs=true This is all based on conjecture, but I did ask a few of the engineers if they were working on an air purifier and they neither confirmed nor denied the claim. It only makes sense considering the fact that the Airblade actually sucks in the surrounding air and purifies 99.9 percent of it before spewing… Read More
