UK-based vacuum cleaner manufacturer Dyson recently held a competition to see which of its engineers could design the fastest racecar using just spare vacuum cleaner parts. Just like the vacuum clears, there were some very creative car ideas. Some worked well, while others were novel in concept only. Check out the video above to see the geekiest race to take place so far this year.
This retro vacuum plugs into your USB. It promises to keep your desk and/or cubicle dust and crumb-free. Only 8” high, the gadget’s movable handle will alter it from 45º to an almost flat position. Although it doesn’t specify the strength of its power, we are wondering if it has the capacity to suck out those Pringle crumbs we occasionally munch on while working. With a 45-inch cord, it comes in brown/beige and is made of plastic. Order now for $19.99 for a delivery date of November 12.
