Dyson launches new vacuum
cleaners with dust-detecting
British home appliance maker Dyson on Tuesday launched two
new brands of vacuum cleaners equipped with dust-detecting
laser technology as the company tries to expand sales here amid
the pandemic-induced stay-at-home trend.
Dyson's V15 Detect and V12 Detect Slim cordless vacuum
cleaners will be sold in South Korea with price tags of 1.24 million
won ($1,100) and 1.09 million won, respectively. The two vacuum
cleaners were already launched in select markets earlier this year.
Dyson said the latest vacuum cleaners boast a laser technology on
the cleaning head that reveals micro dust and dirt particles on the
floor, reports Yonhap news agency.
They also have a piezo sensor that can measure and count dust
particles, and show such data on an LCD screen. The sensor,
which converts vibrations into electric signals, counts the
particles 15,000 times a second, according to the company. Read
