British engineering company Dyson has announced its first robot vacuum cleaner at an event in Tokyo.

The Dyson 360 Eye joins a crowded market - Hoover, iRobot, Samsung, Neato and Vileda are among other manufacturers to sell such products.

But the Cotswolds-based company says its machine has more powerful suction and should be better at spotting dirt thanks to a "unique" camera system.

Me too! However, the idea of owning one sounds good but it might not be very practical for everyone. Unless you've got big rooms with plenty of wide open floor spaces, I can't see it able to get into all the nooks and crannies, or the stairs for that matter. I think I'll get it a miss, it'll probably cost a fortune anyway :D

I want one also, we have a lot of cat hair that seems to migrate to places difficult to reach.

Perhaps the American pubic should send a few thousand to Washington..... :whistle:

I have the NEATO.  I LOVE it.  We have three longhair dogs and two cats.  It really helps with the hair.  I've programmed mine to run at 11:00 AM every day.  It just starts up and does its thing.  

The NEATO goes under my furniture.  The Dyson looks too tall.  I have a Dyson vacuum that I love but for the daily bit I'll stick to my NEATO.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.

Some dogs, too.  Mine hates the vacuum.  She'd probably go postal on one of these robot vacs.

I can see these being useful for people that over schedule their time and never get a "chance" to vacuum.  If Dyson's is like the one I saw some time ago on the news, they aren't very big. You'll have to empty it a lot!  Though think about this if you crate your dogs during the day.  You crate the dog and send the vacuum on it's merry way (in a room other than the dog).  My dog sheds like there's no tomorrow, so you can clean the rugdaily without having to worry about the dog.

Dyson products are usually expensive, I think their "Air Multiplier" (i.e. fan) was close to $300. It was pretty cool however!

Yes very expensive and now made cheaply in China.

My local rubbish tip is full of them.

I gotta say I hate my Dyson vacuum.

but if I ever did own one of these, I'd have to get a cat who'd ride on it. I'd laugh my butt off all day (instead of vacuuming).
