Dyson Enters Humidifier Market, Says Other Humidifiers Make You Sick
You might use in a humidifier, especially in the colder months, to help with dry skin, nosebleeds and other winter ailments. So Dyson thinks they can act as a sort of germ cannon that could actually contribute to cold- or flu-like symptoms, rather than preventing them. To stop that, the British company - better known for its vacuum cleaners and hand dryers - has engineered its own device, simply called the Dyson humidifier. The Dyson humidifier uses ultraviolet light to neutralize 99.9% of bacteria in the water it uses, the company says. The humidifier also acts as a fan, boasting a similar design to Dyson's Air Multiplier fans, which are blade-free. Dyson says there were 643 prototypes, and it cost more that $60 million to develop the device. No word on retail price, but if Dyson's Air Multiplier fans are any indication, you are not going to find this humidifier in any bargain-discount sections. If you are in the U.S., don't expect to get your hands on a Dyson humidifier in time for winter.
