So the good folk at Dyson are pitching their new Dyson City as a pint sized vacuum cleaner for the city dweller. It is a no-bag cyclone unit which weighs less than your average laptop and has been tested up to 5000 drops onto a ‘hard floor’. Ah, but has it been drop-kicked through the French windows after failing to suck up Fido’s moulting hair? That’s the real test. And for 275 moving parts and a fancy marketing messages you’ll pay the less than tiny price of £249.99.
The vacuum is small enough to sit on an A4 piece of paper – with no loss of cleaning performance. All 275 parts of DC26 were re-engineered by Dyson specialists to miniaturize the technology while keeping the performance of a full sized vacuum. Dyson’s patented Root Cyclone™ technology – condensed to fit into the machine – spins dust and dirt out of the air using centrifugal force, so there’s no loss of suction. 13 small inner cyclones deliver superior efficiency in as little space as possible – keeping air velocity high and energy consumption low.
