  • Review: Dyson DC26 City Vacuum

    Short Version: It’s easy to be dubious about Dyson – they are surprisingly pricey yet still look kind of cheap – but man do these things suck. http://media.entertonement.com/embed/OpenEntPlayer.swf Short Drum Roll with Cymbal Crash sound clip  drum roll sound clips Read More

  • Review: Dyson DC25 Animal

    Short Version: I really struggled with this one. As someone who is notoriously cheap, I had serious reservations about reviewing a vacuum cleaner that has an MSRP of $549. I mean, seriously? What could make this particular vacuum so much better then the old standby bagless that I picked up for $100 at the local retail store. Well, I’m here to tell you: I was wrong. The Dyson DC25 Animal is… Read More

  • Review: Dyson AM02 Tower Fan

    Short Version
    It’s been a long, hot summer here on the homestead. John-John gets the whoopus when the dust kicks up and the house, such as it is, is about as hot as an oven most days. Most of August, when one of the neighbors rides into to town to check the bank thermometer and we find out that it’s well into the nineties, we usually just headed out to the old horse trough and… Read More

  • Dyson's Response To The Air Multiplier Fan Clones

    It’s probably a good time to be a patent lawyer over at Dyson. After all since the company produces bonifide innovative products every other week, clones no don’t pop up everywhere. It’s job security. That’s all. Just last week a seemingly perfect clone of the fanless Air Multiplier hit the interwebs and Dyson just issued a statement to do us concerning the… Read More

  • Looks Like Dyson, Priced Like A Knock-off, Still Blows

    Not content to stick to the cheap imitation of tablets and other computers, the clever copiers at Abiko have produced a “homage” model of the Dyson bladeless fan. Keep in mind that the knock off isn’t of the newest models, but rather the 10-inch desk fan that we reviewed last year. Read More

  • Dyson's new air multipliers blow (in a good way)

    Back in October, John reviewed Dyson’s original “air multiplier” (can you say fan?) and while he liked it, the pricing was a bit extreme for a something that blew air around a room. That being said, Dyson has come out with new line of “air multipliers” and this time they’ve added a few new tricks to the line. Read More

  • Review: Dyson DC31 handheld vacuum

    The DC31 is a handheld Dyson. That’s probably all I need to say for you to know that it’s awesome. Read More

  • Must… resist… obvious Dyson vacuum/fan joke…

    Dyson, the makers of the trendiest vacuum cleaners around, have switched modes. Enter the Dyson Air Multiplier, a fan that utilizes the same bladeless technology as the Dyson vacuum. Thing looks like a freaking jet engine sitting on your desk. A jet engine that keeps you cool, that is. John already got to check one out. Read More

  • DIY Dyson-like workshop vacuum

    The core concept behind the Dyson vacuums are nothing new. In fact workshoppers have been using similar, but a whole lot more simple versions, to take some load off of their expensive dust collection units for years. Either you buy one, or you spend some quality time with some PVC pipes and make your own. Read More

  • Video Review: The Dyson Air Multiplier

    And you thought fans were boring. This new table fan by Dyson features a bladeless design that seems to be a first in the “things that blow stuff industry.” I’m quite impressed. A large ring channels the air through a very thin slit and over a specially designed surface. The result is a jet of cool air. There are three controls – on/off, speed, and oscillation –… Read More

  • The Dyson DC25 Blueprint is probably not meant for you

    People, stop everything that you are doing and let me introduce to you the sexiest vacuum of all time: the Dyson DC25 Blueprint. This my, friends, is the epitome of unnecessary but totally rad luxury items. First and foremost, it’s a Dyson DC25 ball vacuum, which is a great vacuum as I found out last year, but this one’s done up in a special edition livery dubbed Blueprint. Read More

  • Video: The Contortionist is a truly portable bike

    It doesn’t take much to understand just how innovative and usefully this one-off bike could be for so many people. It was created by a 24-year old who wanted a bike that could pack up into a small package but could find one to buy. So he made the Contortionist and it might net him £10,000 in the James Dyson Award for Innovation. Read More

  • Dyson DC31 claims to have the fastest motor in the world

    Today in London, Dyson introduced a brand new handheld vacuum, the DC31. It weighs 2.2lb and is essentially an upgrade from the DC16, but this one packs a switched reluctance motor, which Sir James claims is the “fastest motor in the world, by a long stretch.” Read More

  • Source: Dyson vacuum confirmed for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen appearance

    Remember the contest that worth1000 held last year for rejected Transformers robots? Well, it looks like one of those rejected bots will actually be making an appearance in the upcoming Transformers sequel. Sources close to the film have confirmed with CrunchGear that a Dyson vacuum will make an appearance during the film. We realize there have been screenings in Asia, but not in the US and… Read More

  • Dyson announces the DC28 Animal, we go hands on

    I honestly have no idea what it is about this Dyson vacuum, but it’s totally giving me a bonerd™. I guess it’s the fact that I’ve seen how much work goes into actually designing and making one of these technologically advanced dirt sucking machines. Today, Dyson announced the upright DC28 Animal with patented Airmuscle technology. The DC28 is a step-up model from the DC17… Read More

  • Dyson presents smaller vacuums built for the Japanese market

    Dyson today took the wraps off compact versions of some of its vacuum cleaners that are specifically tailored to fit the smaller Japanese homes [JP]. Chairman James Dyson said in Tokyo although the vacuums are Japan-only at this point, they may be eventually made available in other markets as well. Read More

  • Review: Dyson DC25 vacuum

    Oh. My. Gawd. I love this Dyson vacuum. It works so damn well and looks great doing it. Some people aren’t going to like this analogy, but it reminds me of the first time I used my PowerMac G4: it simply works and feels like it’s going to last forever. I’m not the one that vacuums in my house so with the hope of not sounding misogynistic, I handed the Dyson over to my wife… Read More

  • CrunchGear designs its own Dyson attachment


    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
