Hands on: After 16 years in the making, Dyson’s 360 Eye is ready to clean house

Dyson made the vacuum sexy, now they’ve made it smart. It took nearly 16 years to get it right, but Dyson finally has a robot vacuum, and it totally — wait for it — cleans the floor with the competition.

We caught up with Dyson at IFA 2014 and spent some time watching the robot at work. Who knew a vacuum could be so fascinating? With an extremely small-yet-powerful digital motor, tank-like tracks, and a 360-degree image sensor that maps out your room so it knows exactly where to go, it’s got some serious cleaning chops.

Dyson has also created a smartphone/tablet app that lets users wield control over the 360 Eye, and even track the little sucker’s progress. Check out our hands-on video to see this incredible robot in action, find out when you can get one, and how much you’ll have to fork over for it.
