Dyson 360 Eye –the vacuum cleaner that’s probably more intelligent than you is

The Dyson Company redesigned the vacuum cleaner a while ago. It took 5000 prototypes and 15 years.

Robot Surgeon Completes First Operation – now we’re really truly scared

The LetterForms Dry Erase Notebook is yet another of those, ‘why did it take so long‘ inventions which make so much sense when you really think about it. Almost everyone has used a paper notebook at some point or another, and filed it away once filled up, wasting yet more space in a drawer or on a shelf.
