The Dyson Hot is the latest innovation from Dyson that is looking to give a facelift to the average household appliance. Similar in design to the Dyson Air Multiplier, the Dyson Hot also utilizes multiplier technology, drawing in air that is then amplified six times filling the room with warm air. So just as the Dyson Air Multiplier filled it with cool air, the Dyson Hot looks to make your room nice and toasty this winter.
The Dyson Hot can be set between 32 and 99 degrees Fahrenheit to heat a room and also comes with a remote control so you can start getting warm from a distance. It also oscillates to cover all parts of your home with warm air up to 8 feet away from the device. The Dyson Hot comes with a built-in thermometer that will monitor the temperature of the area, and it will turn on or off, depending on the temperature in the room.
“Fan heaters rely on inefficient motors or dust friendly grilles. As the heat rises you’re left with a partially heated room and a worrying burning smell. We’ve developed a heater that heats the whole room, without you having to constantly adjust the temperature.” James Dyson
The Dyson Hot was certainly warm and delicious when I got up close and personal with it today. Of course being that it was cresting at 80 degrees outside in New York City, it’s hard to appreciate a heater – but nonetheless it was a very warm and soothing experience. Furthermore, the Dyson Hot is easily portable and cool to the touch, so you won’t have to worry about getting burned fingers if you move it from room to room.
The Dyson Hot comes in both Iron/Blue and White/Silver and will retail for $399.99. You’ll be calling the Dyson Hot, the Dyson Hottie, when you bring this home to warm your cockles.
Besides launching the Dyson Hot, on display was also the newly introduced DC 41 Animal along with its Dyson predecessors. Check out the gallery of Dyson uprights of years past.
