182 Patents for Dyson cleaner

Dyson has revealed its latest product design innovation – DC15 The Ball.

Three years in development and filed under 182 patents, The Ball’s design offers improved vacuum cleaner manoeuvrability, according to company founder James Dyson. The body of the cleaner sits on a pivot on top of a ball, eliminating the need for several push-pull steering movements.

The Ball, which retails at £320, was developed by the 350- strong team of engineers and scientists at the Dyson Research, Design and Development Centre in Wiltshire.
