Despite having made a name for himself in the industry with his great vacuum cleanersDyson has been diversifying its catalog for years, and we have already seen it launch wireless headphones a storied air purifiers. However, the English company now seems determined to go a step further and has confessed that it has been secretly designing robots for years to make housework easier for us.
Taking advantage of the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), Dyson has shown some of the advances they have managed to make in their robotics department and that allow us to understand where the company’s shots are going. In the video you have below we can see robotic arms picking up toys, washing dishes or vacuuming armchairs.
The company has announced that it hopes to hire up to 2,000 engineers, scientists and robotics experts who are capable of translating the automation we see in industrial robots into our home tasks, a plan that they intend to materialize by the end of this decade.
“This is a ‘big bet’ on future robotics technology that will drive research across Dyson, in areas such as mechanical engineering, vision systems, machine learning and energy storage,” said Chief Engineer of the company, Jake Dyson.
If we have already seen what robots like those of Boston Dynamicsit does not seem crazy what Dyson has in hand.
