Dyson 360 Eye: How It’s Engineered

You think designing and testing a product for mass production is easy! Well, this is just a glimpse of the process…

Jake Dyson Lighting

“Other designers have made half-hearted attempts to cool LEDs. But it’s not enough. Their lights are built to fail and they don’t seem to mind. We mind. So we’ve invented the first light that cools LEDs properly. As a result, it lasts for 37 years” – Jake Dyson. More info here

Air Multipliers and Helmholtz cavities

Five years ago Dyson invented the world’s first bladeless fan, the Dyson Air Multiplier™. Basically they reinvent a phenomenon already known in the scientific community but their marketing team made it to look amazing. Now it is time for them to go a little bit further. To make the same technology a lot quitter. Up to 75% quieter to be exact, while the machines maintain powerful airflow. As for how it works? They are explain it a lot better here: “Air is drawn in by an energy-efficient, brushless motor. Airflow is then accelerated through an annular aperture, passing over an air foil-shaped ramp, which draws in and channels its direction. This creates and projects powerful, smooth, high velocity airflow…”

Reducing the turbulence of high velocity air whilst retaining high performance is a challenge. A key factor for a solution of this challenge is the use of the Helmholtz cavities, reengineered airflow paths, and aerodynamic diffuser. Everything explained on the above video.

Faster than a Racecar

Why a vacuum cleaner video is interesting for me? Because it shows so much technology and engineering in just 90 seconds! Its all about the Dyson DC59 cleaner and how it is working so efficiently. I am always enjoying Dyson YouTube videos because almost all they are sharing the same format. A combination of technology and close up photos/animation that will produce the wow factor at the costumer side. And probably this formula is working perfectly!

Dyson engineers reveal R&D insights

I was surfing the web and I just found, on the Dyson’s YouTube channel, something that triggered my mind despite my first thoughts that I am going to see a boring video just out from the marketing department! The result? It is amazing how much engineering is behind a vacuum cleaner. Basically is a short length video describing the problems and engineering solutions during the R&D process of a new Dyson model. Lots of electronics and mechanical parts in this…

Dyson – A Technology Company

What this blog has to do with vacuum cleaners, hand dryers and heaters? Well, actually nothing! But a good video is worth noticing no matter his origin! And this one is from Dyson. A British technology company founded in 1993 from the inventor James Dyson. So, what is all about in this video? Its about robots working together to produce their patented digital motor. Their precise movements look more like choreography rather than fixed predefined positions in space. Even the colours of the robots and movement speed variations (probably made like that only for the purpose of this video) help to form a good result

Actually their YouTube channel is full of great content demonstrating their tools, innovation and beautiful industrial design. If you pay a visit, prepare to watch lot of vacuum cleaners videos but the little bits of technology and engineering between them definitely worth the try. And here is a quickie about failure from James Dyson
