Open Source Vacuum Cleaner Project

Open Source Vacuum Cleaner Project

Our modern lives are dependent upon proprietary technology which few of us could explain let alone understand how it works.

A growing number of people are reacting to this proprietary technology by building their own devices, so called Open Source Hardware (OSHW). This project explores the application of OSHW to the design of every day objects, taking the ubiquitous vacuum cleaner as it’s subject.

    It is amazing that it has taken this long for someone to make an open source version of a vacuum cleaner utilizing cyclonic separation. Most industrial central vacuum systems use cyclones (and possibly a baghouse as a second cleanup step) and cyclones are a very mature technology used widely in a lot of industries.
