Spring Cleaning is on the horizon (as it pretending to do Spring Cleaning and instead sit on the couch with the Swiffer leaning against the wall). Make your day worthwhile with Amazon’s one-day deal on Black & Decker vacuums. Get one for any need, from handheld to car to stick. But don’t wait, these prices with get…
Samsung has a new robot vacuum cleaner, and its most notable feature might just be that it bears a very strong resemblance to a Sith Lord. This Empire-loving vac will be formally introduced at CES 2017 and will ship some time in March.
It’s 2016, and your vacuum shouldn’t have a cord anymore. The Hoover Linx features an 18-volt battery, a motorized brush that you can turn on and off, and an easy-to-empty receptacle, all for an all-time low $87. Just note that this is a Gold Box deal, so be sure to get yours before they’re all vacuumed up.
Eufy is a new home-focused brand from Anker, and its upgraded robotic vacuum just got its first discount.
Play with your food. That’s the moral of the story from Crazy Russian Hacker. He put marshmallows in one of those vacuum food containers, pumped out the air, and watched the squishy little white puffs balloon into ginormous monsters. It’s all silly fun.
Koozies. They keep your hand from getting cold and your beer from getting warm—what could be better? One that keeps your beer cold for much, much longer, that's what.
You could probably stand to vacuum more, and this week we’re taking your nominations for the best tool for vacuuming better. Which vacuum is the best, and which features matter the most to you? Head for the comments and tell us.
What happens when you put liquid nitrogen in a vacuum chamber? It turns solid. And then it snows. As the vacuum lowers the pressure in the chamber, it decreases the boiling point of the liquid nitrogen which means the nitrogen boils faster. But! The boiling liquid nitrogen is also evaporating which cools itself which…
Trap a peep under a bell jar and suck out all the air with a vacuum pump. What do you think happens to the peep? (Hint: It doesn't end well for our marshmallowy friend.)
We're all familiar with the classic springtime tradition of sending Peeps to their noble deaths via microwave, but that's getting a bit old. How about a total vacuum instead?
James Dyson's has an idea for a new form of sucking machine—one so large it requires an entire barge to house it.
If you'd like to make a point about the physics of helium balloons, just stick one in a vacuum.
Robert Goddard was one of the pioneers of rocketry. But during his lifetime, he was either mocked or ignored. And sadly, he died before he could be applauded for the visionary he was. But why did people think space flight was so impossible?
We all love that famous movie tagline, but it can be tough for kids to understand. Here's a basic experiment you can do with kids — or for your own curiosity — to demonstrate exactly how a vacuum can eliminate sound. All it takes is a bottle, a bell, and a couple of matches. Try it out!
These bugs might just be the hardest organisms on the planet. They're the only creatures observed alive inside an electron microscope that actually survived this airless, high-radiation environment. This discovery could mean big things for life on other worlds.
Cleaning is dull. But don't worry, there's a solution: turn your Hoover into a hover craft. Not only is it a great displacement activity, it'll also make cleaning your place easier. Double win.
It's kind of hard to impress anyone in home theater anymore, but you'll probably pull it off with a no-one-can-hear-you-scream vacuum in your living room.
