Today, Dyson have done what we wished they would!

The day I got my Roomba 400 series years ago I have been wondering why Dyson hadn’t done this? I wasn’t just wondering, I wished Dyson would do it. The uphill running water was great, but James, I thought, please get back to the robot work. But he’d never deserted the task, it seems. My Roomba worked – but it never really did what I thought it would. It was a talking point, but it never actually cleaned particularly well. 

Sixteen years is how long Britian’s greatest living inventor says he’s been working on a Dyson Robotic Vacuum cleaner. 100,000 hours of work; sweat and tears also I imagine, but as ever with Dyson within the R&D, the hard work, test, failure and re-test lay the spark of innovation that makes Dyson different. Sixteen years. It appears, it was worth the wait.

Cleaning made easy. With the Dyson 360 Eye robot, vacuuming can be done at the press of a button. The robot has its own app to
allow users to control, schedule and analyse data from their smartphone.The machine gets to work autonomously using a unique 360 vision system to build detailed maps of its environment. A Dyson digital motor, Radial Root Cyclone technology and a full width brush bar combine to give the Dyson 360 Eye vacuum excellent pick-up performance. It has the most powerful suction of any robot*.

Cleaning will never be the same again. Using 360° panoramic technology the Dyson 360 Eye robot vacuum cleaner can navigate the room, tracking where it has been and where it needs to go. Tank tracks and a wide brush bar enable the machine to maintain speed and direction across all floor types and over small obstacles picking up dust and dirt as it goes.  #DysonRobot

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
