Dyson unveiled its first-ever robot vacuum at IFA 2014 in Berlin.
The Dyson 360 Eye, announced at IFA, will be available in Japan first before a wider international release and will cost 130,000 Yen (that's roughly $1,250, £750, and AU$1,320).
The Dyson 360 Eye was showcased at IFA 2014.
The brand clearly drew from its existing aesthetic to create the 360 Eye's design.
While it is Dyson's first production-ready robot vacuum, it isn't the brand's first bot.
This was actually Dyson's first robot vacuum, but it never made it past the prototype stage.
The 360 Eye is quite a departure from the original model.
For one, it has an app.
That way, you can schedule your 360 Eye remotely or initiate a one-time cleaning cycle on-the-go.
The app is called Dyson Link and will be available on Android and iOS platforms.
It's also a lot more compact than its original prototype, and most competitor models we've seen, too.
It comes with a transparent dock and a large power adapter.
Dyson walked us through its navigation pattern, with the green section indicating its path and the red section indicating obstacles it has detected and maneuvered around.
The 360 Eye will only be available in Japan at first and will retail for 130,000 Yen.
It's safe to say that Dyson is continuing to focus on high-end appliances with the 360 Eye.
Dyson makes a lot of big claims about the suction power of its vacuum, which might account for the massive price tag.
Dyson's official press release said that the 360 Eye has "more suction power than any other robot vacuum on the Japanese market."
It has tank-like treads instead of wheels.
Infrared sensors detect obstacles.
The brush bar spans the width of the machine.
And, it has a 360-degree camera on the top that scans the room at up to 30 frames per second.
The 360 Eye is coming to Japan in spring 2015, with plans to expand internationally from there.
