Dyson is investing £330m in its future in Singapore.

“It is no coincidence that we are deepening our investment in Singapore to achieve our technology ambitions. Right here, some of the world’s brightest minds are working on artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, fluid dynamics, vision systems to bring hardware, electronics and software together. Good software allows Dyson products to actually improve over time and gives them intelligence to understand and respond to their environment”, said Sir James Dyson, Founder, Dyson.

The new facility has the latest development labs, bringing together the latest hardware and software expertise.

Dyson plans to grow the Singapore-based engineering team by 50 per cent.

Located in the heart of Singapore’s start-up community and next to the National University of Singapore, the new Centre’s engineering teams will focus developing new technologies for the future.

Dyson invests £7m a week in research and development and employs 3,500 engineers and scientists globally.

It has 1,100 people in Singapore split between its Technology Centre at Science Park I and its advanced digital motors manufacturing facility at West Park.

Dyson is seeking highly skilled engineers across a broad range of engineering disciplines including connectivity, motors, sensors, electronics, robotics, navigation, software and purification.

Monday, July 18th, 2016

First launched in Japan back in May, the Supersonic marks Dyson’s foray from the business of cleaning to the business of beauty.

To commemorate the launch, Tangs will be doing an exclusive online pre-order with Tangs at their website from 20th July onwards.

“Hair dryers can be heavy, inefficient and make a racket. By looking at them further we realised that they can also cause extreme heat damage to hair. I challenged Dyson engineers to really understand the science of hair and develop our version of a hair dryer, which we think solves these problems,” said James Dyson, Inventor & Founder of Dyson.

Customers who pre-order the hair dryer may opt to pick up their machines at Tangs or have them delivered to their homes from 5 August onwards.

As part of the official launch, Dyson will conduct a hair academy with beauty blogger Drea Chong on the evening of 5 August from 7–9pm.

Limited spots are available and are on a first-come-first served basis.

Parties interested may RSVP to join hair academy.

Below is more information about the Supersonic hair dryer, extracted from Dyson’s press release.
