The product of years of research, the Dyson 360 Eye has an app for remote access and a 360-degree camera. The camera captures up to 30 frames per second and uses that info to track where it is, where it's been, and where it still needs to go.

Its tank-like tracks make it better able to traverse different kinds of floors, Dyson promises, while the full-width brush eliminates the need for side brushes.

It also uses infrared sensors to detect obstacles in its path and respond accordingly.

The 360 Eye's continuous track wheels are designed to be able to handle different floor types and obstacles more easily than standard wheels.
