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.

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.

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.
