Dyson's brand-new humidifier is currently only available in Japan, but it's due out in the US in fall 2015 and in the UK and Australia in spring 2015.
Dyson's new humidifier is currently only available in Japan.
It costs 59,800 yen (that's roughly $560 in the US, £350 in the UK, and AU$645 in Australia).
It will be available in the US in the fall of 2015 and in the UK and Australia in the spring of 2015.
It's available in a variety of different color finishes.
It doubles as a fan, too.
You may see the similarities between the humidifier's design and Dyson's existing Air Multiplier heaters and fans.
Dyson says that humidifiers are excellent breeding grounds for bacteria.
So, it decided to come up with its own built-in cleaning system.
Dyson's humidifier uses UV light to blast the water.
It claims that this will get rid of 99.9 percent of the bacteria.
This model comes with a remote.
You can use that remote to set sleep timers for anywhere between 15 minutes and 9 hours.
You can also use it to set airflow levels from 1 to 10.
This humidifier is designed to hold up to 3 liters of water.
It's supposed to run for as long as 18 hours, too.
Dyson went through 643 prototypes and spent over $60.4 million (roughly £38 and AU$69 million) on this humidifier.
Would you spend this much on a humidifier-fan hybrid?
I guess we'll know more when it hits the US in the fall of 2015.
