Dyson's new vacuum phones home when it needs fixing  FEB 24 2005

Dyson's new vacuum phones home when it needs fixing. "The gizmo alerts the user if it has broken down or needs a replacement part. The owner then dials the number of the Dyson call centre and holds the telephone receiver to the vacuum cleaner. The machine transmits a message telling engineers what's wrong and orders any new part it needs."
