Even though this object looks like a golf ball, it’s actually a robotic vacuum cleaner. This innovative vacuum, the Dust Ball, uses two axes to move and the holes suck up dust. Designer Dave Hakkens mainly designed this vacuum for public buildings because there are less walls. The coolest part? When the dust bin is full, Dust Ball returns to its point of origin and glows.



Watch the Dust Ball in action! Check back next week to guess at a new item!

    Super cool. I would love having a dust free room one day. I wish it was a tad prettier though. Haha

    Wow, that is a truly awesome product. In the dust ball vacuum, the motor inside doubles as the dustbin and drives the unit by rotating on 2 axes to generate enough force to move.
