How much is a Dyson DC28?
Dyson’s new DC28 Animal upright vacuum with “Airmuscle” technology, $600, includes an automatic adjustment system aimed squarely at the kind of performance needed to deep-clean carpeting. And as if Airmuscle and Animal don’t sound macho enough, the DC28 includes hardware that seems more suited to muscle cars.

Can I wash my Dyson vacuum head?
WARNING: Do not wash the end cap. Rotate the end cap to unlock and remove. Wash the Soft roller cleaner head. Allow the Brush bar to dry for 24hrs.
Is Dyson American?
Research, Design & Development. All the initial research, design and development of Dyson technologies is done at the Dyson headquarters in Malmesbury, England. It’s here that James Dyson and his team of engineers are hard at work every day, constantly finding ways to make things work better.
What are airair muscles?
Air muscles (also known as a McKibben artificial muscle or braided pneumatic actuators) were originally developed by J.L. McKibben in the 1950’s as an orthotic appliance for polio patients. The muscle consists of a rubber tube (bladder or core) that is surrounded by a tubular braided fiber mesh sleeve.
How much do air muscles contract?
Air muscles can contract up to 40% of their length, depending on the method and materials of their construction. Gas law states that if you increase pressure you also increase the volume of an expandable cylinder (provided temperature is constant.)
Do air muscles work under water?
They will work when twisted or bent and can work under water. They’re also easy and cheap to make! Air muscles (also known as a McKibben artificial muscle or braided pneumatic actuators) were originally developed by J.L. McKibben in the 1950’s as an orthotic appliance for polio patients.
What are the applications of air muscles in robotics?
For further reading I recommend having a look here: Several applications of air muscles include robotics (especially biorobotics), animatronics, orthotics/rehabilitation and prosthetics. They can be controlled by microcontrollers or switches using three way solenoid air valves or by radio control using valves operated by servos.
