A very Dyson Christmas from our engineers, to you.
From vacuum cleaners, to motors, Dyson engineers have redesigned countless things over the years. In the spirit of Christmas, some engineers set about rethinking the traditional Christmas tree, applying aspects of Dyson technology.
The result? A brand new Christmas tree design, and it certainly challenges convention.
“The tree uses Bernoulli’s principle to suspend baubles at the end of the tree branches. Swiss scientist, Daniel Bernoulli, demonstrated that, in most cases, the pressure in a liquid or gas decreases as it moves faster, this is why the baubles stays suspended in the air,” - Will, Senior Fluid Dynamics Engineer.
“We had about a month to create a Christmas tree that no one had attempted before. We had to start from scratch. We went through loads of iterations, but we finally settled on a design. Whether it was the weight of the baubles, or the angles of the pipes or 'branches', there was so much to consider. A team of us were on board from across RDD – we had to call in a few favours. From fluid dynamics, to acoustics and model making,” continues Will.https://www.facebook.com/dysonhttps://twitter.com/dysonhttp://www.youtube.com/dyso...
