Dyson unveils Pure Cool Link air cleanser for household pollutants
Dyson with its new air purifier is aiming to create fresh air within the household environment. The company's newly launched Pure Cool Link air cleanser pledges to clean up the pollutants enveloping the home atmosphere. With this new purifier, Dyson enters the market of Internet of Things.
The new air cleanser, which is available both in tower or desk versions, eliminates grime from the air before it reaches the room. The purifier also removes home pollutants like household chemicals, moulds, smoke from fires and pressure cookers, tobacco dust and sprays. According to the company, the new purifier that is furnished with 360-degree glass and activated carbon HEPA filter captures 99.95% of impurities in the household air like smells, pollen, chemicals, dust and things 0.1 micron or bigger.
The purifying fan, which monitors the quality of air in the room automatically, can clean the room air in 30 - 60 minutes of time. "Dyson engineers focused on developing a purifier that automatically removes ultrafine allergens, odours and pollutants from the indoor air, feeding real time air quality data back to you," theguardian quoted James Dyson, the founder of the company. People suffering from dust allergies will be more profitable with this air purifier.
In addition, the fan has a Night Mode option that blurry the LED display light in the night. Hugo Wilson, head of design department at Dyson, said that present homes are more enveloped against heat and noise, which in turn traps the household impurities inside, making the homes five times over polluted than outdoors.
According to TechCrunch, this new air purifier and fans will be available to customers from Thursday through partner and direct vendors for $499. However, there are similar purifiers from Dyson's peers like Conway that offers air purifiers at just $250 and its features are guaranteed for by a scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The filter, which cost GBP 50, will have to be transformed with a new one nearly once a year if the machine run for 12 hours per day, in that case the machine will inform users via the display and app. Currently, the Link version does not incorporate with the rest of IoT devices like HomeKit of Apple and SmartThings hub of Samsung.
InsiderCarNews cited The Guardian report, which said that the maker of vacuum cleaner is seeking to make an electric car. The new battery car project is backed by the British government that is ready to provide monetary assistance to the company. Dyson acquired Sakti3, a battery company in America, and it is working on the means to increase the life of lithium-ion batteries.
Dyson's link app will mark its entry into the IoT market and it is focused to reduce household pollutants. The impurities inside the home can increase the risk of bronchitis, asthma and other related respiratory diseases.
