Dyson V15 Detect: A new battery-powered vacuum that does battle with dust using lasers
Dyson has added another cordless vacuum to its range with the V15 Detect. The new device may look like many of Dyson's other battery-powered vacuums, but it features new technologies to cleanly more deeply. According to the company, the V15 Detect features a green laser light with 'Laser Dust Detection' in its Slim Fluffy cleaner head that should show up even the smallest debris particles. It is worth noting that Dyson has designed Laser Dust Detection for hard floors. Hence, it will not be as effective on carpets.
Additionally, the V15 Detect has an acoustic piezo sensor that supposedly measures and counts the dirt that the vacuum has collected. Apparently, the vacuum performs these calculations up to 15,000 times per second, which it converts into electrical signals to display the size and volume of particles sucked up on the vacuum's built-in LCD. Dyson believes that this information will give people insights into how clean their house actually is, rather than just using your eyes with conventional vacuums.
The Dyson V15 Detect features the company's Hyperdymium motor too that provides up to 230 Airwatts of suction. The V15 Detect has other improvements too, including a revised brush that should not get clogged by hair. According to Dyson, the V15 Detect should last up to 60 minutes of continuous use between charges.
The Dyson V15 Detect is available to order in the US for US$699.99. However, Dyson is yet to list its new vacuum on other regional websites, such as Germany or the UK.
