Testing the DIYson

A project log for The DIYson, an open source Cyclone vacuum cleaner

Why buying an expensive cyclone vacuum cleaner when you can build yourself one?

It works! There are still a lot of improvements to the design that can be added, as some of you pointed out, but for this first version, I think we are happy how it works. Probably next version I should use a slightly bigger EDF with 1kg thrust instead of 0.5Kg, price is more or less similar.

Battery lasts more or less 20 minutes.

One part of me wants to write "Cool, now try to vacuum up half a bag of flour!"

But the other part of me is like "Shut up! You want to see this thing getting finished."
