Rolling Static-Cleaner Gets Dust More Effectively Than Your Hoover

— November 13, 2013 — Eco
Just imagine being able to efficiently carry out your domestic dusting and vacuuming with one simple appliance! The Rolling Static-Cleaner is a time- and labor-saving concept that comes with more attractive features still.

Deemed one of the "Best of the Best" inventions within the 2013 Red Dot Design Awards competition, this device is remarkably compact and incredibly silent. Yoon Jisu, Lee Hyelynn, Seok Juwon and Sin Junho developed a slender staff with a trumpet-like tip that holds an electrostatic ball. Basically, you run this cane-esque contraption across the floor -- or almost any surface within your home -- and dust, fur and dirt will be attracted to it, even from several centimeters away. There's no noise associated with the operation of the Rolling Static-Cleaner, and no fussy process of emptying it of the pesky particles collected.
Trend Themes
1. Multi-tasking Cleaning Appliances - There's a demand for products that allow consumers to efficiently clean multiple surfaces with one simple appliance like the Rolling Static-Cleaner.
2. Silent Cleaning Technology - The silent operation of the Rolling Static-Cleaner could be a disruptive innovation opportunity for companies looking to create quieter cleaning appliances.
3. Electrostatic Cleaning Devices - The electrostatic ball feature on the Rolling Static-Cleaner could inspire the development of similar devices that attract dust and dirt from other surfaces.
Industry Implications
1. Home Cleaning Appliances - The Rolling Static-Cleaner could disrupt the home cleaning appliance industry by introducing a noise-free, multi-tasking cleaning device for consumer use.
2. Electronics - The electrostatic ball technology on the Rolling Static-Cleaner could be adapted into new products for the electronics industry, such as dust-free circuit board cleaners.
3. Hospitality - The silent operation of the Rolling Static-Cleaner could create a disruptive innovation opportunity for hotels and other hospitality businesses, allowing for a quieter clean of guest rooms.
