From humble beginnings as a "vacuum cleaner company" to one of the world's leading innovators, Dyson has slowly changed the way we think about home appliances. In fact, they're relentless when it comes to innovation, and the Dyson DC51 Animal vacuum is no exception.
In a world filled with iProducts, Netflix and (soon) Google Glasses, it may be surprising to learn that the one company on the cutting-edge of innovation makes vacuums. That's right, vacuums. The Dyson DC51 is the company's latest iteration of their famous floor cleaners. The DC51 has been redesigned to incorporate all the power of its full-sized cousins -- including Dyson's 2 Tier Radial cyclone and pivot-ball technology -- while minimising overall size. And just like any reliable Dyson product, the DC51 underwent rigorous prototyping and testing (550 tests over 50,000 hours) before meeting their standards.
The Dyson DC51 is a well-designed, easy-to-use vacuum that defines the saying "less is more." However, being a Dyson product, this vacuum will set you back about $500. Actually, $549.99 to be exact -- a paltry sum for a crumb-free carpet.
