Dyson Working On Robot That Climbs Stairs
Dyson has filed patented designs for robots who will be able to navigate staircases.
Bloomberg is reporting that Dyson’s robotics unit has been working on a robot that will interact with its other home appliances, which may be linked to this patent design.
The patent was published in the UK on September 1, and shows a “robotic device with tri-star wheels and actuated arm” that will climb and clean stairs.
As is always the case with patent filings, they don’t automatically mean that a product is close to coming to market, or is even intended to ever be sold. A spokesperson confirmed to Bloomberg that “we file a lot of patents” and Dyson doesn’t speculate on products it “may or may not launch in the future.”
