Spin Vacuum

Inventor: James Dyson

Not just another bagless vacuum cleaner, the Dyson DC07 has a brand-new way to take grime out of your carpet. It's called cyclonic separation. Whirling dirt and air within its eight cylindrical cyclones at speeds up to 600 m.p.h., the machine uses centrifugal force to trap the dirt and expel the air. Because there is no filter to clog, the DC07 never loses its oomph. Its "liquid steel" shell is made from the same plastic-metal polycarbonate as riot shields. And emptying the collected dirt is as simple as pulling the trigger.
