Dave Hakkens intentionally set about designing a robust vacuum cleaner that could easily move over cables, doorway thresholds and flexible enough to be pushed or kicked in any direction to clean dusty floors.
Dave's DustBall design was inspired by hamster ball and the same way an old computer mouse works - an internal sphere controlled on two axes enabling the ball to roll in any direction by shifting the weight of its internal components. When the Dust Ball is full, it rolls back to its charging station and glows indicating that it's ready to be emptied.
The clever promo video complete with zappy sound bed of the concept vacuum cleaner convincingly demonstrates its potential use in future office environments and airport foyers.
