The headset's applications.
Dyson's V4HF digital motor was developed over the course of three years. The ten engineers working on the project wanted to create a smaller motor with enhanced performance for use in a hydrogen fuel cell.
Dyson's Diesel Trap X007 prototype may remind you of the brand's cyclonic vacuums.
That's because Dyson wanted to apply its cyclone filter technology to diesel fuel engines to reduce air pollution (similar to the way it filters allergens when you're cleaning your floors).
