Even in the dead of winter, some of us at Crave suffer the worst of allergies--and, when spring rolls around, we'd be better off in a bubble. That's why we're always on the lookout for anti-allergy technologies, even when we're in the car.

Naturally, Samsung's "Silencio" uber-vacuum cleaner got our attention, as Appliancist says it has a "suction power rating" of 360 air watts that exceeds its conventional counterparts. (We also like its name, as well as the blue LED lights.)

The bagless Silencio automatically adjusts the settings of its two-chamber system depending on the surface it's attacking, "catching 99.95 percent of micro-particles such as dust and allergens," all while making as little noise as possible. Most awesome of all is its design, which makes it a dead-ringer for the Master Chief.
