Dyson has introduced several new cleaning products and a new air purifier, but the most notable new item is the company’s long-awaited new entry into the robot vacuum market, the Dyson 360 Vis Nav, which it claims to be the “most powerful robot vacuum.”
Dyson 360 Vis Nav Robot Vacuum
The Dyson 360 Vis Nav robot vacuum has sensors that detect the edges of a room and can redirect suction through a side actuator that offers precision edge cleaning. It’s basically a tiny brush that pops out from the side to capture all the dust and debris between the edge of the floor and the wall or baseboards. The processor can reportedly pinpoint its position to within 71mm.
Engineered with unique Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) technology, the Dyson 360 Vis Nav has a 360° vision system with fish-eye hemispheric lens that remembers where it has been, can see where it needs to clean, and intelligently creates dust maps of your home.
The high-level processor collects data from 26 sensors for a range of tasks, including dust detection, obstacle avoidance and wall detection, to clean right to the edge.
It features a new, full-width triple-action brush bar for hard floors, and soft Fluffy nylon for large debris pick-up and anti-static carbon fibre filaments to remove fine dust. The stiff nylon bristles, meanwhile, help dig into carpets.
Dual link suspension allows the machine to climb up to 21mm while its low profile means it can clean under furniture up to 99mm. It runs for up to 50 minutes per run time after which it automatically returns to the dock to recharge. Emptying is done by removing the waste bin via a single click and emptying it into the garbage.

Dyson Purifier Big+Quiet Formaldehyde
Dyson’s latest air purifier is the Big+Quiet Formaldehyde, which is designed for large, open commercial or residential spaces. It uses Dyson HEPA technology and new Cone Aerodynamics to deliver 10-metre projection. The new Co2 sensor indicates when it’s time to ventilate.
Despite its large size, the unit operates quietly at just 56dB. The five-year HEPA H13 particle filter traps up to 99.95% of ultra-fine particles while the new K-Carbon filter removes gas pollutants and three times more NO2. There’s also a lifetime Selective Catalytic Oxidation filter that permanently destroys formaldehyde, says Dyson. Sensors, meanwhile, constantly monitor the indoor air quality and send live data to the MyDyson app.
Those with allergies, or large commercial spaces with common allergens, will love that you can select the filtration level.
Dyson Gen5detect and Gen5outsize Cordless Vacuums
There are two new cordless vacuums joining the line-up in the Gen5detect and Gen5outsize, both of which feature fifth generation Hyperdymium motor technology for improved suction power, and the capability of capturing viruses from the home, claims Dyson.
The vacuums have fully sealed, whole-machine HEPA filtration that can capture 99.99% of particles down to 0,1 microns. There are also 14 cyclones that remove dust from the airflow so there’s no loss of suction.
They come with a new Fluffy Optic cleaner hand with increased brightness and range that reveals twice the amount of invisible dust. The fade-free energy dense battery offers up to 70 minutes of run time per charge.
Dyson V12 and V15 Detect Submarine
The Dyson Submarine wet roller head is a convenient attachment that comes with the Dyson V15 Detect Submarine and Dyson V12 Detect Slim Submarine, which are designed for wet mopping. They deliver water to remove spills, stains, and small debris from hard floors.
The wet roller has an eight-point hydration system that uses a pressurized chamber for even water distribution across the full width of a roller. The motor-driver microfibre roller can remove stains and spills from floors up to 1,180 square feet in size using the 300mL water tank. There’s also a durable plate that extracts contaminated water from the wet roller and deposits it into a separate waste-water tank so you don’t transfer dirty water back to the floor.
Designed with a low profile and full-width brush bar, the Dyson Submarine isn’t a traditional vacuum, though it can suck up some debris as it mops. It’s designed to be used with room temperature water though you can also use a small amount of non-foaming detergent.
