It’s time to welcome a new era of house hygiene with Dyson’s newly launched 360 Vis Nav robotic vacuum. After facing a lacklustre response to its initial robot vacuum, the 360 Eye, the company has returned to the scene with a spiritual successor that looks ready to redefine expectations and prove its prowess. The 360 Vis Nav, which Dyson claims is also the “world’s most powerful robot vacuum,” comes fitted with unmatched intelligence, compact design, and unprecedented power to help make your cleaning routine effortlessly automated.
For starters, the 360 Vis Nav features a Hyperdymium motor spinning at 110,000 RPM, with Dyson promising “twice the suction” of any other robot vacuum on the market. Dyson has even introduced a groundbreaking “triple-action” brush bar, a first for the company. This innovative feature combines three distinct cleaning methods to deliver a deep and thorough clean with potent suction. The triple brush consists of soft nylon bristles to tackle large debris on hard floors, while the anti-static carbon fibre filaments excel at capturing fine dust. The stiff nylon bristles also dig deep into carpets, leaving them immaculately clean.
At the heart of the 360 Vis Nav’s “smart” cleaning capabilities lies its ingenious top-mounted fish-eye lens that, when paired with its intelligent code, helps process the information from the camera, enabling it to remember “where it has been” and to “know where to clean.” This remarkable tech enables the vacuum cleaner to navigate with precision using Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) technology. By analysing recognisable landmarks, the 360 Vis Nav can map its path throughout your home. Equipped with 26 sensors, the device can also detect and navigate obstacles in multiple terrains within your home.
To help it clean better in low-light and hard-to-reach areas, this robotic vacuum cleaner utilises eight LEDs strategically positioned around the lens. There’s even a dual-link suspension system that allows the robot vacuum to climb up steps up to 21mm in height. The vacuum’s advanced piezo sensor calculates dust levels a staggering 15,000 times per second, with all data conveniently recorded and displayed on the MyDyson app. Using the recorded data and intelligent algorithms, the 360 Vis Nav can detect dust hotspots and strategically boost suction power in those areas, guaranteeing an immaculate clean throughout your home.
One of the most impressive features of the 360 Vis Nav is its ingenious arm that gracefully pops out when the vacuum leans against a wall. This clever mechanism allows the vacuum to reach right to the edge, redirecting its suction power effectively. Just like every Dyson vacuum, the 360 Vis Nav is equipped with a fully sealed design and an advanced five-stage HEPA filtration system. This ensures that the robotic vacuum captures an astonishing 99.99 per cent of particles, even those as minuscule as 0.1 microns.
However, all that added suction power takes a toll on 360 Vis Nav’s battery life, which when compared to other models is a substantial downgrade. It can clean for roughly 50 minutes before automatically returning to the dock for a recharge. However, once charged, the vacuum will resume its cleaning from where it last left off.
Jake Dyson, Dyson’s chief engineer, said in a statement, “Robotic vacuum cleaners should be highly effective machines that intelligently clean your home, so you don’t have to. Enabling these autonomous cleaners relies on highly complex algorithms, visual interpretation, dust-sensing capabilities and powerful motor technology. Dyson engineers have taken everything we’ve learned from developing our vacuum cleaners, combined it with intelligent software, to develop the Dyson 360 Vis Nav – the most powerful intelligent robot vacuum cleaner.”
For those ready to experience and embrace the next frontier of automated cleaning, then the Dyson 360 Vis Nav is now available in Australia for $AUD 2,399 at Dyson’s official online stores.
