Dyson Link: now you don’t even have to get up to control your robot vacuum cleaner

Dyson’s 360 Eye robot vacuum cleaner gets on with the chores while you relax or find something more exciting to do. And you don’t even have to get up to turn the thing on thanks to a nifty app from AKQA

 

 

 

The Dyson Link app, for iOS and Android, allows users to control the cleaner (which goes on sale in Japan in early 2015) remotely.

 

You can schedule times for cleaning and even track where the robot has been – the 360 Eye has onboard infra-red sensors allowing it to triangulate its position in a room and make a model of its environment. It can sense open doors, allowing it to move from one room to another, and work out which bits still need doing as it breaks floors down into three-metre grids. The app visualises that activity

 

It also acts as a means to download software upgrades for the cleaner and to activate its guarantee.

 

 

Or you could just get up and push the hoover around the room for ten minutes like any normal person….
