Dyson DC41 Animal eats your pet's leftovers

Dyson's compact new vac promises to eat through pet hair without coughing up hairballs

Dyson's latest super-sucker is similar to the older DC25 but with an updated ball design that puts more of the vacuum's workings inside the ball itself for a less cluttered design. Called the Animal, it's specifically designed to rid your home of pesky pet hair.

It comes, as you'd expect, with a multitude of tools. Onboard are a debris nozzle/brush tool, stair tool and our favourite – the mini turbine head, designed to get into the tricky bits on your sofa or car seats, especially if they're hairier than a waxing parlour's wheelie bin.

It's out today priced at US$600, but we're expecting UK pricing an release date soon.
