Cambridge Consultants, the company behind the Sprint in-wall radar are back with a new product, and this time around it’s something more civilian-friendly that it’s previous offering. Instead of a radar used to detect enemies or traps behind walls, the company has announced a new ‘eco-vacuum’ concept called Stem. Citing it as possibly the “world’s most eco-friendly vacuum cleaner”, Stem is said to use 43% less energy but provide the same performance as its regular average counterpart that can be found in just about any home today.
What makes Stem capable of such energy savings is the way it works. Stem automatically varies its power usage depending on the job being done, which also depends on the floor head or hose attachment. Secondly, the eco-vacuum intelligently reduces power usage when no cleaning is happening i.e. when paused for moving furniture or carried across the room. The layout for the vacuum cleaner’s internals have also been optimized for best airflow and maximum efficiency.
Stem will also be similar in size and weight to standard models, meets all regulatory requirements and will come at a price point comparable to premium models. Seeing how vacuum cleaners haven’t really evolved that much over the past few years, it’s good to see someone realizing the importance of improving a household staple that everyone can and will use.
