Karim Rashid's Kone Vacuum

Most handheld vacuums look like, well, a handheld vacuum. But the Kone, designed by Karim Rashid for Dirt Devil, could pass for sculpture.

The cordless conical vac sits seamlessly in a charging cradle base until you need it. Available in 6 colors and looking this hot, it wouldn't be out of place sitting out in the open.

Has anyone used this yet? We're always disappointed in handheld vacuums and wonder if this one works as well as it looks. It's definitely accessible at only about $40. -regina
