Vacuum first - Robot second
Dyson's heritage is built on cyclone technology, so of course, the 360 Eye makes use of it, because the machine was built as a vacuum cleaner first, and a robot second.
Dyson engineers have designed the company's smallest Radial Root Cyclone technology yet, still capable of generating high centrifugal forces to capture small particles such as pollen and mold.
As part of the miniaturisation process, Dyson's engineers have also created a small, powerful motor, named the Dyson Digital Motor V2.
The V2 will spin at 78,000 rpm, that's much faster than an F1 engine, and Dyson claims it generates the highest suction of any robot vacuum.
It's not just about the motor, the Eye also uses a full-width brush bar with carbon fibre filament - the same used on the company's latest full-sized machines. That means it provides suction across the full-width of the 'bot, reducing the inaccessible areas.
