Dyson made something as mundane as vacuuming look like something out of Blade Runner. It was only a matter of time before the engineers brought their impressive technology to personal care, unveiling the most high-tech blow dryer you’ve ever seen. A 13-blade, brushless motor spins at 110,000 revolutions per minute (compared to the usual 20,000) with buttons on the back to control temperature and air flow. The technology, much more durable than a traditional hair dryer, allows for a more compact design by hiding the motor in the handle. $399.99.

IROBOT ROOMBA 980
Vacuum robots have been around for a while, but they’re not always all they’re cracked up to be. The main complaints include the inability to map the floor and a lack of suction. The Roomba 880 introduced two AeroForce extractors, making it possible to clean a carpet without a brush, but the 980 improves upon the previous model by implementing visual simultaneous localization and mapping technology. This includes a camera and room sensor for the 980 to see obstacles and create a map of the room to ensure the entire space gets cleaned. $899.99.
