Robot vacuums have come a long way from simply being small rolling vacuums that, sort of, get the job done. They come packed with intelligent features thanks to improved visual recognition systems through the use of cameras and LiDAR, as well as various levels of AI. Now, Dyson looks to extend this even further with its new Dyson 360 Vis Nav Robot Vacuum that can physically reach out to clean right to the edge.
This new robot comes with an automatically extending side duct that is able to extend the reach of its clean into tight areas—allowing it to get more of the dirt that is closer to the wall, sideboards, corners, and the other regions these robots commonly miss.
Of course, it includes all of your common features and offers 360-degree recognition of its environment. Leading to quality mapped-out spaces around the home, the ability to know where it has been, and to know where it still needs to go. Along with obstacle avoidance so it doesn’t drag things around as it cleans.
You are able to rinse its filter and roller so you never have to replace them and it offers up to 50 minutes worth of cleaning on a single charge.
The only catch seems to be the price, which is no surprise coming from Dyson. The company is known for its heavy price tags and this product is no different from the rest. Its MSRP looks to be $2,399, making for a hefty cost for a robot vacuum.
It should be making its way to certified retailers in the near future, although we haven’t seen a specific release date for store shelves. Dyson products can be found on websites like Amazon and Best Buy.
