Dyson has announced its first automated vacuum cleaner — called the 360 Eye. Dyson CEO James Dyson said that the device is the world’s first robotic vacuum cleaner and said that it is not a “gimmick.”
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930) has filed a lawsuit against Dyson for 10 billion won (about $9.4 million USD). Dyson claimed that one of Samsung’s products looked like a “cynical rip-off” of their designs. Dyson also sued Samsung last year for infringing on their patented vacuum-steering system. The lawsuit was dropped, but Samsung alleges that they were depicted as a repeat patent violator. Samsung said that this “seriously hurt its corporate image.” They said Dyson’s “groundless litigation” was “intolerable.”

Dyson is best known for building vacuum cleaners and the DC 31 is no exception. What distinguishes the DC31 from all the other vacuums out there is that it spots the world’s fastest motor with a speed that is ten times greater than a Boeing 747 aircraft engine. The DC 31 is the latest vacuum cleaner from Sir James Dyson, a British inventor.
This machine may be the first of many products to feature the built-in motor. The motor speed is 104,000 revolutions per minute and turns 10 times faster than a commercial aircraft and five times faster than a Formula 1 engine.
The vacuum weighs 2.2 lbs. and uses a rechargeable battery. It is designed for cleaning cars and certain areas around a household. Dyson employed about 50 motor engineers to work on this product at the headquarters in Wiltshire, England. Many of these motor engineers have automotive experience. The Dyson DC 31 will be on sale for £129 ($212) next month.
