The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball™ vacuum is monostatic – it has a single, stable resting point. With the heaviest components nearest the floor, its low centre of gravity helps the vacuum to stay balanced and upright. And if it does get knocked over, gravitational force automatically self-rights it.
Pneumatic cleaner head.
A surface recognition sensor detects changes in floor type. It then automatically controls the flow of air to the compression chamber, which raises and lowers the tool baseplate to maximize suction.
G-force created in the cyclones
Oscillation speed of the cyclone tips, to prevent clogging
Tolerance during chemical etching of the shroud
"We developed the self-righting technology, along with the machine’s new format, in a hands-on way. Producing numerous rigs and testing them in the real world, rather than with computer modelling, gave us a deep appreciation of usability."
