Dyson’s final vacuum cleaner, the oddly-named 360 Heurist, skipped a US launch, apparently as a result of its design was ill-suited to the format of American houses. However it seems to be like the corporate is planning to launch a brand new robovac within the US quickly, after submitting particulars of an unannounced product with the FCC. Pictures within the submitting appear to indicate a brand new design that’s wider and flatter than its predecessors, with a squared-off rear and bulkier charging base.
The unnamed robovac is available in the identical putting nickel blue coloration as its predecessor, and has tank treads and a removable mud bin, identical to Dyson’s earlier forays into this product class. It additionally seems to be just like the gadget (labelled RB03) has the Heurist’s 360-degree digicam with LED lighting ring. These LEDs are vital, as they make sure the gadget can navigate at nighttime — useful if you need your robovac to wash while you’re out or asleep.
Branding on the gadget suggests it’ll additionally use Dyson’s new Hyperdymium motors. That is merely Dyson’s title for its newest brushless electrical motors, which have appeared in its most up-to-date stick vacuums. It additionally seems to be like you’ll be able to take away a part of the interior tubing (image 4 beneath) that connects the bin to the brushes. That may be a neat improve, because the 360 Heurist had a tendency to clog when vacuuming piles of huge particles.
Probably the most fascinating change for this product, although, is the brand new form. Dyson’s earlier vacuums, the 360 Eye and 360 Heurist, have been taller and narrower than rival merchandise constructed by iRobot and the like. This enables them tighter cornering round objects like chair legs, however stops them from vacuuming below some furnishings. It’s exhausting to gauge the precise dimensions of this new product (regardless of the inclusion of rulers in photos, the angle is complicated), but it surely does appear to be wider and flatter than the Eye and Heurist. This could tally with Dyson’s previous feedback that the Heurist was not fairly proper for US houses. Permitting the vacuum to get below extra objects of furnishings will surely assist with gross sales.
There’s no assure in fact that this product will find yourself within the US, however an FCC submitting does clearly counsel that that is Dyson’s present ambition. We anticipate to listen to extra about this product sooner or later.
