Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link fan now makes the air in your home pure, hot and/or cool

And is 'linked' to the cloud for remote control and air quality monitoring. Come on, do we really have to spell this out for you?

Last year's Dyson Pure Link was the British brand's first connected device, and scooped a T3 Award nomination for the usual Dyson blend of stylish design and clever engineering. The app and connectivity were unusually good for a first effort, too.

Sold as an air purifier - they're big in Japan, we're assured - the Pure Link was also, obviously, a Dyson fan (opens in new tab). So you can probably guess what the new Pure Hot + Cold Link is. That's right: it's a fan that's also a vacuum cleaner…and hairdryer!

• Caution: this Dyson Eye 360 review might put you off buying it

• This Dyson V8 review should have the opposite effect, however

No, okay, it's an air purifier, fan, and heater, all in one.

This do-it-all fan does actually suck up dust, so in a sense it's a bit like a Dyson cordless vacuum (opens in new tab). It's just that it sucks it from the air, using a glass and carbon HEPA filter that's easy to fit and £50 to replace, about once every year or so. (Grab a Dyson deal (opens in new tab) to make the whole thing even more affordable.)

The technology employed munches up 99.95% of potentially harmful particles as small as 0.1 microns.

Control is via the same app used for the 360 Eye and original Pure Link, letting you either turn it on remotely, set a schedule, or allow it to work automatically, spinning up when built-in dust and chemical sensors detect heightened pollution levels, for instance if you're cooking, or your kids have been smoking and then spraying Lynx about in a feeble attempt to mask the smell. Kids are idiots.

Heating and cooling can similarly be set to work automatically, keeping your room at a temperature of your choosing.The app also lets you monitor pollution and temperature levels both indoors and out.

We'd actually question the provable health benefits of air purification if you're not an allergy sufferer. However, even if it doesn't help you live longer, having cleaner air at home is undoubtedly more pleasant.

As ever, with Dyson, the Pure Hot + Cool Link is an attractive thing, even if its slightly squat form lacks the elegance of the floor-standing original Link. This alternative blue and silver-grey colour scheme is undeniably fierce.

The Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link is available now in America and from September 1 in the UK, priced £499.99

Duncan has been writing about tech for almost 15 years, during which time he has attended every event going, apart from Apple ones, as he mysteriously doesn't get invited to them. He has covered everything from smartphones to headphones, TV to AC and air fryers to the movies of James Bond and obscure anime. 

Duncan's current brief is everything to do with the home and kitchen, which is good because he is an excellent cook, if he says so himself. He also covers cycling and ebikes – like over-using italics, this is another passion of his. Duncan also edits T3's golf section because fuck it, someone has to. Dave Usher does all the real work on that bit, though. In his long and varied lifestyle-tech career he is one of the few people to have been a fitness editor despite being unfit and a cars editor for not one but two websites, despite being unable to drive. He also has about 400 vacuum cleaners, and is possibly the UK's leading expert on cordless vacuum cleaners, despite being decidedly messy. A cricket fan for over 30 years, he also recently become T3's cricket editor, writing about how to stream obscure T20 tournaments, and turning out some typically no-nonsense opinions on the world's top teams and players.

Before T3, Duncan was a music and film reviewer, worked for a magazine about gambling that employed a surprisingly large number of convicted criminals, and then a magazine called Bizarre that was essentially like a cross between Reddit and DeviantArt, before the invention of the internet. There was also a lengthy period where he essentially wrote all of T3 magazine every month for about 3 years. 

A broadcaster, raconteur and public speaker, Duncan used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
