A cordless vacuum.
While the industrial design of the Uzu Cyclone vacuum
initially got our attention, the fact that this sleek vacuum is cordless is what made us take a closer look. Definitely Dysonesque in the looks department, this compact vacuum unfolds as opposed to unraveling when you need to use it, making for a nicely organized hose system.
Combine this with the absence of a power cord and you no longer have to worry about getting tangled up in furniture or not being able to reach an out of the way corner. Unfortunately it looks like the Uzu is only available in Japan at the moment, but at $398, if it were to come here it could definitely give the Dyson a run.
