Dyson 360 Eye Robot Vacuum

The Dyson 360 Eye Robot Vacuum is pretty pricey at $1,150 and is only available in Japan at the moment. But it might be the best robot vacuum on the market, so if you have friends in Japan, have them snag one for ya.

It has a 360-degree panoramic camera with eight IR sensors that take up to 30 images per second of the room it's cleaning in order to continually relay where it is, where it has been and where it needs to go. And Dyson has a smartphone and tablet app, called Dyson Link App, that allows owners to remotely control the robotic vacuum cleaner and start cleaning while they’re away from the house.

Borrowing from other Dyson vacuum technology, the 360 Eye features a digital V2 motor that spins at 78,000RPM generating the highest suction of any robot vacuum. The 360 Eye automatically self-docks and recharges when its battery runs low. The lithium-ion battery is good for 20-30 minutes of run time.
