The world’s first house-sized vacuum cleaner can be installed in a house by a single person, a breakthrough that could revolutionize the way homes are constructed and controlled.
The new product, called the S3, has been developed by the Danish-owned company DNV GL, which said it is the first commercial vacuum cleaner designed to be built from the ground up using the new technology.
DNVGL also said the device has a built-in fan to produce energy.
A vacuum can create clean air when a high-pressure hose or nozzle pushes air out of the vacuum cleaner.
The product is designed to reduce carbon emissions by about 10 percent compared with conventional air cleaners, according to a statement from the company.
The company is developing the product in partnership with a Dutch-based energy company, EnerVest, and a Swiss company, MFG Energy.
The device uses a specially designed vacuum pump to push air into a vacuum chamber.
The pump is powered by a generator, which is connected to a power cable.
The system uses only one 10 kilowatt-hour battery pack that is connected by a plug to a standard computer, DNV said.
The technology was developed by DNV’s Advanced Clean Technologies Group, which specializes in vacuum cleaning and has worked with some of the world’s biggest companies including Toyota Motor Corp. and Swiss watch maker Fossil.
The vacuum cleaner, which costs about $2,000, can also be controlled remotely by a smartphone app.
DVRG, which makes the vacuum and control devices, has worked on a similar product, the DVR, that was introduced last year by the Dutch-owned firm ZVV.
The DVR uses a combination of sensors, sensors and actuators to measure the pressure of the air and its temperature to determine how much time is left to reach the vacuum chamber, DVR said.
DVM, which owns the vacuum brand DNV, is working with ZV, Mfg Energy and Enervest to develop the device, the company said.
It has also worked with Swiss watchmaker Fossil to develop a similar device that is being marketed in the U.S.
