Vacuum Cleaners: Floating on Air

Reviewed by:

The days of coaxing and pleading with your vaccuum to follow you around the house may be a thing of the past. Introduced in late 2004, this vacuum uses hovercraft technology in place of wheels and actually floats 1/8" above the floor.

Its HEPA filtration system captures minute particulate matter up to 0.3 microns (such as pollen). It also has a bagless canister and a 19-foot electric cord.

  • The Airider sells for about $400 (September 2005).
