Technology

Picks up microscopic dust.And itself.

Self-righting technology.

Dyson Big Ball™ vacuums are monostatic – they have a single, stable resting point. By assembling the vacuum's components in a spherical array, with the heaviest near the floor, our engineers created a curved body with a low centre of gravity. It's naturally stable, but if it gets knocked over, gravitational force automatically self-rights it. And its spherical shape means it turns easily on a point, so it's highly manoeuvrable.

Radial Root Cyclone™ technology.

Compact cyclones arranged over two tiers generate powerful centrifugal forces, to capture microscopic dust and dirt particles. The radial formation channels airflow through the centre of the cyclone assembly to maximise suction.

Hygienic bin emptying system.

The stainless steel shroud is chemically etched with 19,000 holes, each measuring 450 microns x 450 microns. This creates a smooth surface for the silicon shroud-wiping collar to slide down, driving out trapped dust and debris.

Carbon fibre turbine tool.

The air-powered cleaner head's 1,644,000 carbon fibre filaments dissipate static charge to remove fine dust from hard floors. And 6,124 stiff nylon bristles drive deep into carpet to remove ground-in dirt.

  • 3 Millimetre control on the centre of gravity, so the vacuum always rights itself
  • 252 Air Watts of suction power
  • 1 Micron tolerance during chemical etching of the bin shroud

"The mass has to be significantly below the centre point of a sphere to make sure it always self-rights. We strove to keep that centre of gravity all the way through development, by testing it on hard floors and sand."
