Anyone for a Dyson?

Unread post by NewcastleFalcon »

Well you will have to move to South East Asia, and wait a couple of years.
...
Some of their Patents have been made publically available, and seem to suggest......

...its going to be just what the world is crying out for.......a Seven Seater SUV crossover.
https://www.theguardian.com/technology/ ... -potential
"The car’s very large and narrow wheels could allow for increased range and efficiency, according to Dyson, essential for battery-powered vehicles. The wheels would be kept as close to the front and back of the vehicle as possible to make the car “highly manoeuvrable … and improving handling on rough terrain.”
Please, when is a seven seater SUV crossover ever going to encounter rough terrain unless rough terrain means speed humps in the suburbs?

The article isn't very long and apologies its a month old.....but perhaps worthy of a few comments from the assembled throng on the FCF

Can’t beat a bit of Dyson

However, he maintains the car is a British project, with the design, engineering and testing of prototypes being carried out at Hullavington airfield, where hangars have been converted to house the project.
In the meantime curiosity will have to be satisfied with finding out a bit of stuff about Hullavington airfield, contributions welcome

Dyson learned his lesson from the vacuum cleaner debacle, he let the competition learn too much about his invention and they all tried to steal it, he had to sue all the big boys Hoover etc. to enforce his patents or he would have been a total failure.

He's going to say as little as possible about his new baby.

And he had to fight Eu protectionist "standards" arranged (illegally) by the big boys and their lobbying...as has been proven in the Eu courts.

The UAV's have already been sniffing around :-D When the prototypes come out of the hangar and speed around the proposed test track, the cat will be out of the bag! Who knows the patents he has already filed may be a complete red herring as far as the finished product goes.

My cousins son works for Dyson there, the patients and plans (I have no details) are "another step forward" in Ev's he says......he is legally very heavily "signed-up" to non-disclosure.

If the airfield is in any way still active then no one should be flying drones around there [-X
