It's taken years of therapy to admit it, but we're unabashed fans of high-tech cleaning gadgets. So we were naturally drawn to this new handheld model from the vacuum maker that has achieved an almost cult-like status, Dyson.

The "Root 6" model is a dust-busting juggernaut that promises to be twice as powerful as its nearest competitors while recharging up to three times faster--two claims that are music to our obsessive-compulsive ears. Appropriate to its mission, it looks like a futuristic assault weapon: Gadget Candy says it resembles a Dr. Who prop circa 1982, but we think it's much closer to the Imperial Walkers in the Empire Strikes Back two years earlier.
