The Dyson 360 Eye was designed from the start to NOT be your typical robot vacuum cleaner. Just like their larger models the Eye was built on the premise that more suction power is always better. In fact, their testing showed that it had twice the suction as the other top robotic vacuums sold today when picking up dust on multiple floor types. While this might not be something you would expect from a robot it is important because you want it to be effective during use as it typically won’t be making multiple passes over the same areas unless programmed to. The Dyson engineers wanted it to be much more efficient than other similar priced brands.
It’s hard to believe but Dyson engineers actually started working on the designs for a robot cleaner in 1999. They wanted to build a machine that cleaned properly on a regular schedule with no intervention on the owner’s part. It’s pretty obvious that this is no simple feat so they put time into the effort over the years, incorporating the improvements found on their more popular vacuums into what would eventually become the Eye. Just under 300 different validation tests were run to make sure it not only picked up dirt on many different surfaces but also that it would hold up under many years of typical use. It may have taken 17 years to hit the market, but in 2016 the first Dyson robotic vacuum rolled off the assembly line.
